Houston, TX-A 13-year-old Attucks Middle School student had did after days on life support.
Kashala Francis' mother, Mamie Jackson, says her daughter told her she was attacked by two girls after school on Thursday, and that another girl later jumped in and kicked her in the head.
Jackson says when her daughter returned home Thursday afternoon, she had a bruise on her face, but insisted she was okay.
On Saturday Kashala became delusional at one point, but then things got back to normal. Sunday Kashala became weak and complained to her mother over the phone of a headache.
"I drove over and I told her get up. I said 'Get up, Kashala.' She kept saying, 'Mama, my head hurt,' so she laid down," Jackson said. That was the last time her mother saw her eyes open. By the time first responder arrived, she was unconscious.
"And we found out she has a large tumor in the back of her head, and she had fluid buildup in her brain," Jackson said.
The tumor was unbeknownst to the family before doctors discovered it Sunday.
It is too early to tell if the fight contributed to Kashala's death or if it was solely a pre-existing condition.
