Fifteen-year-old Millwood basketball player Karisma Taylor was in a coma in critical condition at OU Medical Center Thursday night, the result of a severe asthma attack before a basketball game earlier this week.

Taylor became short of breath during warm-ups before the game and was told to go outside, according to KWTV-9, which originally reported the story.

Outside the gym, Taylor passed out and was in full arrest when paramedics arrived, the story said.

A Millwood official could not comment on the story Thursday because of an ongoing investigation into the incident.
