Michigan: Fennville High School’s star basketball player, Wes Leonard, collapsed on the basketball court and later died after making a game-winning layup in overtime to cap his team’s perfect season.
After a winning layup, Wes Leonard was surrounded by adoring fans. Suddenly he collapsed and was surrounded by family and then paramedics. He was transported to Holland Hospital. After Advanced Life Support measures by paramedics and emergency department physicians lasting lasting 80 minutes, Wes Leonard was pronounced dead.
An autopsy Friday showed that Leonard died of cardiac arrest due to an enlarged heart, according to a statement from Dr. David A. Start, the Ottawa County chief medical examiner.
Wes Leonard, 16, is the second Fennville High School Blackhawk athlete to lose his life in 14 months. In January of 2010, a wrestler, Nathaniel Hernandez, 14, died after suffering a seizure at home after he had participated in a match.
