When I played soccer in HS, an opponent took a ball in the chest from close range and collapsed. Turned out he went into cardiac arrest. Ambulance arrived, revived him and took him to the hospital with the word being he'd be ok. Finished the game, then found out the next morning he had died. 17 years old, went to play a soccer game, and it's all over. Shook me up for quite a while.
