    Metro Triathlete Dies During Swim Portion

    WHO TV - Des Moines: Metro Triathlete Dies During Swim Portion

    June 22, 2008--A metro man competing in the Hy-Vee Triathlon died this morning during the swim portion of the race in West Des Moines.
    46-year-old Jim Goodman was about 150 yards into the water when he signaled for help. Crews pulled him from the lake and performed CPR. Goodman was taken by helicopter to Iowa Methodist Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
    Goodman was president and CEO of Customer Ease in Des Moines. He had participated in the triathlon last year as well.
    This is sad. I am going to guess heart attack.

    Holy crap, I had not heard that yet. You don't expect people in such good shape to die during an event.

    Check out the Register's photo galleries. There's a gallery from this morning's race. Photo three is a picture of four people carrying Goodman from the water. I'm guessing they'll probably remove that one very soon. At least they should, out of respect for the family.

    Holy hell, that's awful. Only 150 yards in too, very sad.

    Wow. I felt sad seeing that picture.

    For me it's just another reminder to appreciate the things I do have in my life right now like great parents, a cool sister, and very good friends. You never know when it's your time to go, so make sure you tell the people in your life how much they mean to you.
