Kristen Oswald, of Royersford, Montgomery County, died during an Ironman triathlon in Ohio on Sunday after being struck by a commercial truck struck while she was cycling on the course. 

A 9-year-old girl used a cellphone app last month to send a bomb threat to her own Pennsylvania elementary school.

State police said the May 26 threat against the H.W. Good Elementary School in the Yough School District in Herminie, Westmoreland County, southeast of Pittsburgh, was made through Roblox, a gaming site popular with children, reported.

Police called to investigate Tuesday identified a suspect and determined that the threat wasn’t credible.

Yough Superintendent Janet Sardon told the TribLive that the girl will face discipline on her return to school in August but wouldn't say whether that action will include suspension. The district sent parents a letter about the incident, Sardon said.
