WebSocket not able to send message when it connects. I am using ESP8266 board and arduinoWebSockets library.

Here is the code I have for websocket event:

void webSocketEvent(uint8_t num, WStype_t type, uint8_t * payload, size_t length) {

switch(type) {

    case WStype_CONNECTED:
            IPAddress ip = webSocket.remoteIP(num);
            Serial.printf("[%u] Connected from %d.%d.%d.%d url: %s\n", num, ip[0], ip[1], ip[2], ip[3], payload);

            // send message to client
            webSocket.sendTXT(num, "Connected");
    case WStype_TEXT:
        Serial.printf("[%u] get Text: %s\n", num, payload);


When ever a socket client is connected I want to send some initial details to it. But I am not receiving the Connected message. Socket is getting connected fine.

If I connect to the websocket, send some message then disconnect and reconnect it again means I am receiving the connected message.
