Being Prepared in the Midst of Student Athlete Deaths
Sources tell TV 20 that a 17-year-old Eastside High track and field athlete died early this morning at Shands hospital.
Sarah Landauer collapsed at track practice Monday afternoon. In the past week, two athletes collapsed and died during sporting events, one in Michigan and another in Colorado. One possible solution to these tragedies could be to include heart tests in student athlete physicals, but cardiologists say sometimes the worst can't be prevented.
The FHSAA requires all coaches to be CPR certified and while automated external defibrillators are not required at all schools, they are highly recommended.
