I can't imagine why someone with a known condition like that would be playing such a physically demanding sport.

Sports are like a war without the killing & they're fun! >:)

He just *literally* dropped dead in his tracks :O That's scary. God to see him survive. Perhaps time for a career change?

Someone with a heart condition severe enough to require an AICD should NEVER be playing in a soccer game. I would doubt he had doctor's permission.

~1. Does it really matter ? You could have a 1000 medical conditions that could take you away, there again you could be hit by a bus the next day, way I see it is why not enjoy what we have while we have it.

As a doctor, its common in athletes. Sudden cardiac death is common compared to layman.

#11 I think your first comment made more sense.

#10 I'm NOT a doctor and I know better that what you say is nonsense. This was NOT sudden cardiac death. This was a patient with a previously diagnosed severe cardiac condition who shouldn't have been walking to the market, let alone playing soccer.

#13 Not necessarily - I was borderline to get an ICD after my heart attack and I have no restrictions on activities. Some people's hearts just handle it better.

#14 so you HAVE had a heart attack, and almost had to get an ICD bc of it.. Hmm, what exactly is your heart handling better?

Just because your doctor didn't place any restrictions on your activities, doesn't mean you should be doing them. Ever heard the phrases "I'd like to get a second opinion" or "better safe than sorry"? If I'd had a heart attack, I sure wouldn't be pushing my luck. A little common sense goes a long way.

And #9, while your point is valid, there are soo many things in life to enjoy without the need to put yourself in danger, esp when there's a known physically augmented risk factor like a heart condition. Again, a little common sense...
