A TEEN boy has mysteriously died while on a school field trip and his devastated family wants to know what happened.
Athumani Brown, of Baltimore, reportedly suffered a medical emergency on June 1 during the trip to the North Bay Adventure Camp in Maryland.
Brown’s devastated mom Dionn has revealed that her son, 13, left the family home “smiling” on the day of the trip.
She said: “I don’t have the words. Every mother’s horrific nightmare.
“My baby left happy, health, and smiling for a 7th grade trip to North Bay and now we have to bury him.”
Brown's family claims they've not received any police or medical examiner’s reports.

Dionn told WBAL: “You don’t send your child off on a field trip and the very next day that child is dead.
“He was well taken care of and we want to know what happened. What happened to Athu? What happened to my son?”
Baltimore City Public School officials believe the boy suffered a medical emergency during the trip.
In a statement, they said: “To be clear, ‘during’ means he was participating in the field trip.”
