Just days before the first day of class, Bixby Public Schools is dealing with another death of a classmate.

16-year-old Matthew Villucci was killed Sunday after he fell off of a personal watercraft and was hit by a boat. It happened at Grand Lake in eastern Oklahoma.

Monday, grief counselors were at Riverview Baptist Church at 132nd and Memorial to help Bixby students cope with the tragedy. More than 50 students were there to console each other and to seek help.

One counselor tells us the students are taking this tragedy particularly hard. This is the third Bixby student killed in as many weeks.
