Frazee teen Myrel Schermerhorn dies
Frazee-Vergas School District officials confirmed Monday that Myrel Schermerhorn, the Frazee High School student hospitalized since a car accident last month, has died. He was 17.
Schermerhorn's father wrote Monday afternoon on the family's CaringBridge website: "This is the proudest Dad in the world," but Myrel "lost this match."
That update was posted at 12:44 p.m. In the hours since, hundreds of people have posted messages of sympathy and support to the website.
