    What a bummer (HS girl collapses on the court and dies)

    ESPN - Glen Oaks' star Veal collapses, dies during game - High School Sports



    This is just tough all the way around. No foul play, just a kid doing what she loved.

    I had a cousin who died in very much the same way. Playing a basketball game at school.

    It's just so senseless. His father has never really recovered emotionally.

    I couldn't imagine how this would feel. Terrible.

    What is with all the sad stories today. Can someone start a thread ripping on the Hawks or something.



    32 years later and I am still riding on the back.

    I still remember in HS when a runner from M-town collapsed and later died. Finished his race, then boom. Always terrible senseless tragedies.

    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    This sounds terrible, but at least when there is foul play, you can some how over time cope and understand the death or use it as a lesson or example. When it's just senseless, it's got to be near impossible to try to understand.

    Exactly.

    I had a classmate in high school who's brother died one evening while at home. He had went to his room after eating supper and wasn't feeling well. His mom then found him dead. I don't think they ever really knew why he died.

    Very sad.
