According to CBS Chicago, Maureen Oleskiewicz choked on a hot dog at a Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field and has tragically died. She was with her brother when she was eating and suddenly collapsed.

The 28-year old Oleskiewicz was a teacher at Independence Junior High in suburban Palos Heights. She chose to be an organ donor, so she was actually kept alive until Tuesday in order to make her organs available to those who are in desperate need of them.

Her heart will go to a 14-year old girl.

It all happened before the game even started. CPR was performed on the scene. However, Oleskiewicz did not respond and was thus taken to Illinois Masonic Hospital by ambulance.

Independence issued a statement on the horrific loss:

“There is no magic wand to fix what we cannot comprehend,” District 128 Supt. Kathleen Casey wrote in a letter to parents. “Maureen had a positive impact on countless students, parents and … colleagues. Her vibrant, positive outlook on life and her joyful nature will be missed more than words can convey.”

The Cubs also issued a statement:

“The Chicago Cubs are saddened to hear news of the untimely death of Maureen Oleskiewicz. We express our deepest sympathy to her family and friends. We will continue to keep her family in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.”
