Family seeks answers after sudden death of 12-year-old boy

Aaron Nguyen only stood 4 feet, 8 inches tall.  Despite his small stature, the 12-year-old had big aspirations.  The 7th grader wanted to be a neurosurgeon or a priest when he grew up.

Those dreams were cut short during basketball practice this past Friday night.

“It's hard to grasp because we just dropped him off, barely like 15 minutes and we got a call saying my son collapsed on the ball court,” recalled Andrew Nguyen, Aaron’s father.

Andrew was still in disbelief over his son's unexpected death. The family set up a memorial in their Elk Grove living room as they wait for an official cause of death.
