We can't believe someone so young could be robbed of their life like this.

A 15-year-old boy from Long Island died of a mysterious illness while on a school trip to Disneyland. His name was Joseph Tutaj.

Tutaj was one of 80 students from his school's marching band to travel to Disneyland, but soon came down with a high fever.

Here's what a band member said:

"The first day at Disneyland he was okay. He went on Space Mountain and everything with us. Then the second day he wasn't feeling well at all."

After the second day he was taken to the UCLA hospital and died 24 hours later.

Doctors have told the parents they believe the teenager may have contracted a debilitating infection. The parents say their son had no history of medical problems. The LA County Coroner's Office say the cause of death has been deferred pending further tests.

Our condolences to the immediate family for this horrific loss. We pray they can gather the strength to continue moving forward in life which we think their son would've wanted!
