The young 13-year-old actress who performed primarily in Broadway died unexpectedly at her home on November 5. The cause of death wasn’t revealed at the beginning, but now it has been discovered that the actress died due to an asthma attack.
Laurel Griggs, died due to an asthma attack in her at her family’s Stuyvesant Townhome, in Manhattan. She was reportedly doing her homework assignment in the computer when the actress started to feel unwell.
The actress who first appeared in Broadway at the age of six informed her father that she didn’t feel so good. Her father, Andy Griggs, claimed that he was alarmed when she called out for him with such a phrase. The father said that her daughter never used to say something like that.
Laurel Griggs, who appeared in Saturday Night Live sketches, was born with asthma. This wasn’t the first time she suffered the attack, only that it wasn’t so dreadful to the last time. She suffered quite a similar asthma attack three years ago. But, at that time, she was treated immediately, and her parents looked after her every time. She had constant medication for the illness.
Laurel’s mother was the first to notice breathing complications, and she immediately asked Andy to get Laurel to the hospital.
The authorities were called in, and they tried to revive the girl by doing CPR. The authorities then quickly rushed her to the Mount Sinai Hospital. Unfortunately, the young kid died four hours later at the hospital.
Laurel had debuted in the Broadway along with Avengers star Scarlett Johansson in 2013 Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. She also had a role in Woody Allen’s 2016 American romantic-comedy drama Café Society.
May her soul rest in peace!
