I vowed to continue to report deaths like this until we see our government take an interest in them, so here we are again.
Yet another teenage athlete who appeared to be in peak condition has collapsed and died.
This time it was 16-year-old Angel Hernandez, a sophomore at Chisholm Trail High School, who had just run a 5K at a track meet in Haltom City, TX.
This should have been a day of celebration for Hernandez, but it was instead the last day of his life.
He had just set a new personal record at the meet, but something was wrong with him after the race.
His friends rushed over and tried to get him to a fountain to get some water, but he collapsed. He was then rushed to a local hospital, where he died.
By all accounts, he was a great kid, with his priorities straight and just looking to do the right thing.
His karate coach, Ashley Wood, stated, “He made you love him with his personality. He had an infectious smile. The moment of silence, it helps us know that he was loved by everyone.”
Wood started a GoFundMe page to help the family cover funeral expenses.
She added, “It’s really hard. We’ll never get over it. We’ll never forget him. He’s going to be missed here, but he’s going to be loved always.”
So, I will ask the same question I have been asking for most of the last year on this subject…
Why do we have so many young athletes having heart attacks and dying?
Is this something that is linked to the pandemic or is there another reason that this is happening?
I don’t understand what it will take for our government to do a deep dive on this and find out if the pandemic and the vaccines are related, or at least try to rule them out.
I have never seen this many reports of young athletes dying, and we need to find out why.
