    Enlarged heart cited in death

    SOURCE: From staff reports


    A Katy High School drill team member who collapsed after practice died from
    an abnormally enlarged heart, an autopsy showed. Sara Krauss, 16, fell to the
    gymnasium floor on the afternoon of Sept. 9 and was taken to Memorial Hermann
    Katy Hospital where she was pronounced dead. Dr. Stephen Pustilnik, chief
    medical examiner of Galveston County, said Wednesday that Krauss died from
    hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, an enlarged heart.
