Arizona teenager Brisa Vasquez loses both parents with COVID in hours


An Arizona high school athlete lost both parents to COVID-19 within hours, four months after his swimming coach was also killed by the virus. Brisa Vasquez’s father, Tony, the reminder president of the Chandler High School swimming team, and his wife, Lisa, died Wednesday night the next morning. The 17-year-old boy is now cared for by a cousin. “This couple spent countless hours helping the swimming team during their daughter’s high school years and never hesitated to go over and over to create special experiences and memories for everyone,” another parent wrote on GoFundMe. This weekend, the school will rename the pool of coach Kerry Croswhite, who died in July.
