dd's friend collapsed and died during hockey practice

Recommended Posts

my dd, age 15, had a friend from when she went to public school last year. Friday during hockey practice he collapsed and died in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. His parents said that he had asthma and a congenial heart murmur. They said that he had been playing hockey since he was 7 and that he always used his inhaler before practice. He also had just had a check-up with his cardiologist 3 weeks ago and told that he was fine to play sports. I still can't believe it.

I'm so sorry.

Was it his heart? I ask because my cousin was 18 when he collapsed, and died within hours of being admitted to the hospital, it was later discovered he had diabetes and no one knew. My mom had my brother and I checked out every year for a while, she was so worried it would just show up in us.
