CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Grief counselors are at Sycamore High School Wednesday after a student passed away during swim practice.

Jose Cerda Navarro, 18, was practicing with the Cincinnati Marlins Swim Club at St. Xavier High School's Keating Natatorium Tuesday when he suffered a cardiac event. He was transported to the hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

The Marlins regularly practice at St. Xavier High School, using one end of the pool. A St. Xavier Coach told Fox 19 that Cerda was standing outside of the pool when he lost consciousness. Coaches from both the Marlins and St. Xavier tried to revive him. A bystander at the pool called 911. Rescuers arrived a few minutes later.

Cerda was a senior at Sycamore High School. No cause of death has been announced.

The Marlins posted this statement on their website last night: "It is with deep regret that we inform you that one of our fellow Marlins, 18 year old swimmer Jose Cerda, passed away unexpectedly today.  Please keep Jose and his family in your prayers.  We will share further details as they become available."

A local sports recruiting website listed October 26 as Cerda's birthday. If that's the case, Cerda will have died on the day he turned 18 years old.
