King, NC - A girl died Saturday in King at the Stokes Family YMCA. 

The YMCA confirmed Jasmine James died but said it couldn't release any other details about what happened. A spokeswoman says James was playing in a league basketball game.

A YMCA member familiar with what happened, says James was found unresponsive in the bathroom. EMS and staff responded and tried to resuscitate James, but their efforts were unsuccessful. 

James was pronounced dead on scene. An autopsy will determine her cause of death.

A YMCA spokeswoman says James was well known and loved by staff and members and that their prayers go out to James' family who lives in Winston-Salem.

James just completed the school year at Hanes Elementary School in Winston-Salem. Her funeral will be later this week at United Metropolitan Missionary Baptist Church in Winston-Salem.
