& # 39; We started jogging a little and he said, "Dae, I can't breathe," Dashaud said KXAS TV while he struggled to fight back tears. & # 39; I was like: "Are you okay? Come on. We're almost home." And he said, "Dae, I can't breathe. I'm going to faint." And I ran to him and he fell to his knees and fell on his back. & # 39;

Dae Dae said his brother started foaming at the mouth, so he turned it on his side to prevent him choking before calling 911 on his cell.

Dee lost consciousness in his brother's arms, his brother said. Relatives took the teenager to the Medical City Lewisville hospital, where he was declared dead, relatives said.
