ELIZABETH - An Elizabeth family is in mourn after a 14-year-old died while playing basketball at the Patrick School.

Nixon Geraldo told his coach he was feeling dizzy just before passing out Wednesday. He died an hour later.

The teen’s sister says the family has been getting support from all of those who knew him.

“He left a legacy and that’s what going to keep us going,” says Gabriela Geraldo. “God is going to give us strength and peace and love to continue our lives without him.”

A GoFundMe page has been started to help the family cover the expenses for Nixon’s funeral.

The family is still waiting for the results of an autopsy.
