Prep-School Football player JauMarcus McFarland tragically dies in a freak elevator accident at the age of 18

JauMarcus McFarland of Pattonville High School in Maryland Heights, Missouri, had dreams to improve his grades in order to play football in college and earn a bachelor’s degree.

The 18-year old football player was trapped and crushed when an elevator in an Atlanta apartment fell.

According to Channel 11 news in Atlanta, Three football players for the school, including McFarland, were taking the elevator on their way to practice when witnesses say the elevator felt as though it was beginning to fall. The elevator stopped and opened on the third floor, with two of the players getting out.

When McFarland tried to exit, the elevator fell. The 18-year-old was crushed, trapped between the top of the elevator and the floor of the shaft for nearly an hour before he was recovered.

A GoFundMe was created for the family. They are trying to raise 20,000 dollars to help with the funeral expenses. We at NFL Draft Diamonds are praying for the family.
