BUTLER, PA — A 17-year-old girl died when she fell in the shower and her hair clogged the drain, causing her to drown.

Brianna Rapp was taking a shower before school Friday morning while her mother was sleeping.

When her mother woke up she went to check on Rapp and found her in the bathtub, which was overflowing.

For reasons unknown, Rapp fell in the shower. When her hair clogged the drain it is believed she drowned as a result.

“We’re thinking she blacked out in the bathtub and fell and hit her head,” said Rapp’s father.

He went on to say that Rapp takes medication for a thyroid condition and has passed out a few times before.

The coroner has not yet released the official cause of death.

A GoFundMe page was created to help raise funds for Rapp’s funeral, but her father posted an update after the page reached $8,500 that read:

“We have decided that after funeral costs are paid and bills are paid, whatever money is then remaining we are going to start a college trust fund up for her brother Tyler (12) and sister Maddy (4) in memory of Brianne.”

For the parents who’ve had the shit scared out of them by these stories I post, please realize this is a freak accident. Don’t make your kid sponge bath in the yard while you watch. I feel guilty enough that I may have made some kid’s life a living hell already.
