(06/16/06) FLORAL PARK ? Students at Floral Park Memorial High School are coping with the death of two students within the span of one week.
Senior Bobby Getschel was found dead by his mother Thursday night. The exact cause of his death is not known. Students learned of Getschel passing just two days after another senior, Kevin McArthur, was killed in a car crash. Three other teens were killed in the crash and another individual was injured.
In a bizarre twist of fate, Getschel was at the scene of the fatal crash as part of his training as a rescue worker. Administrators say counseling for both staff and students will be made available at the school. A memorial service is also planned for the deceased students.
