Friends, family and fellow students are remembering a Harvard-Westlake student who collapsed and died on the Studio City campus.

A school assembly is planned on Monday to remember 11th grade swimmer Justin Carr.

Paramedics were called to the school's pool after Carr collapsed during a workout. Carr was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The head of Harvard-Westlake sent an email to parents informing them of Carr's passing, calling him a scholar, athlete and "an extraordinary young man."
