Tristan Frolander was in second period Advanced Weight Training when he said despite temperatures of near 100 degrees, the coach still made the students do their workout.
“We went outside in the heat, ran wind sprints, back pedals and had to carry someone,” said the junior.
He ended up collapsing during the class.
“I eventually got into an air conditioned room and felt like I wanted to pass out,” said Frolander.
Corey Frolander, Tristan’s father, said he received the call about his son while in Los Angeles Tuesday morning.
“I’m shaking. I’m upset,” Corey Frolander said. “I build schools, I work at schools and the number one thing is the safety of our children.”
After Corey got home he decided to take his son to the hospital.
“He was just lethargic and I got home and he was still that way,” said Corey Frolander.
According to Corey, safety was not on this coach’s mind. He said at least five other students also became ill. He’s contacted the school principal and district administers and has yet to hear back.
“My son passed out, another student vomited and several students went to the nurse’s office.”
San Marcos High School principal Julie Mottershaw did not return Fox5’s calls for comment Tuesday.
