Boston, MA – A Fitchburg High School teacher died early Friday, June 4, 2010, after breaking up a fight between two students outside his classroom, as reported by The Boston Channel.

Douglas Vaughn Lloyd, 65, of Ashburnham, who worked for Mount Wachusett Community College, suffered a heart attack at approximately 7:30 a.m. He was breaking up a fight between a pair of 16-year-olds that were dating.

The city fire department was alerted that the teacher was experiencing difficulty breathing by a retired firefighter that was at the school. The retired fire fighter and the school resource officer administered CPR while waiting for help. Once ambulance crews arrived, paramedics and an EMT took over CPR and intubated Lloyd.

An ambulance rushed Lloyd to HealthAlliance Leominster Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Lloyd had worked at Mount Wachusett since 2008 as an MCAS biology instructor. He was described as a passionate teacher who was “a very nice guy” and popular among students and teachers.

Mount Wachusett Community College President Daniel M. Asquino said Lloyd’s colleagues were “deeply saddened over his loss.”

The pair who were fighting were described as a couple who fought a lot, according to a testimony from a student at the school. The two were scheduled for arraignment in juvenile court in Fitchburg Friday afternoon.

Graduation ceremonies were also scheduled for Friday evening.
