Cristy Caserta, who competed in Season 15 of ABC reality show “The Bachelor” in 2011, died suddenly in South Florida on Thursday, according to police in the Broward County city of Sunrise. She was 38.
Officer Luis Fernandez confirmed to USA TODAY that Caserta was in a training class of some sort early Thursday when her classmates noticed her head hit her desk and her coffee cup went flying.
They rushed to offer aid but she was unresponsive. An emergency team arrived to perform CPR. She was taken a hospital, Westside Regional Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead just before 9 a.m. EDT, Fernandez said.
The cause of death has not been established; the county medical examiner is conducting an autopsy Friday, Fernandez said. It could be weeks before a cause is established. The medical examiner’s office did not return a message from USA TODAY.
“The (young) age and the circumstances of how this occurred catch attention; we made sure we were on the thorough side (of investigating the death),” Fernandez said.
Fernandez said Caserta, an attorney, had an address in South Florida but not in Sunrise.
