A stage volunteer died Monday night after collapsing on a scaffold at Pine-Richland High School during a musical rehearsal.

Bradley Oberg, 64, of Cranberry, died at 7:45 p.m. at UPMC Passavant hospital, where he was taken after collapsing about 45 minutes earlier, a spokesman for the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said. An autopsy is scheduled Tuesday.

“During musical practice...one of the adult stage volunteers experienced a medical emergency and became non-responsive at approximately 7 p.m. in the Pine-Richland High School Auditorium,” according to a statement from Rachel A. Hathhorn, director of communications fror the school district.

“Members of the musical staff called 911, while others served as first responders, including a school certified nurse,” Hatthorn said.

Paramedics took Oberg to the hospital, she said. Northern Regional Police are investigating.

“Our thoughts go out to the volunteer and the volunteer's family. The district is initiating its emergency response plan and meeting with school counselors and psychologists,” Hathhorn said.
