An online fundraiser has raised more than $37,000 for the family of an Iowa high school wrestler who died after collapsing at a tournament.

The money will be used to help the family of Austin Roberts, who died Saturday, pay for his medical and funeral expenses. 

Roberts, who wrestled at the 220-pound weight class, was at a tournament at his high school in Spencer, about two hours northeast of Sioux City, when he collapsed on the wrestling mat and was taken to a hospital for treatment.
