Princeton High School soccer player collapses and dies at 16

A high school soccer player died at the hospital after a medical incident at a Princeton High School sports field in June. Ethan Jovani Trejo, 16, collapsed on the field during conditioning and the athletic trainer administered lifesaving procedures, including CPR.

A 911 caller reported the teen was down and collapsed, had a seizure and stopped breathing. "You guys need to hurry up," he told the dispatcher. Trejo died an hour later after being taken to the hospital. "Our Princeton family, friends, classmates, teammates, coaches, and community grieve the loss of a life taken too soon," Princeton City Schools superintendent Tom Burton wrote.

"We are in contact with the student’s family and ask on their behalf that our community provide them with the support, respect, and privacy to process this sudden and unexpected loss of a loved and truly remarkable young person."

The school was devastated after the Trejo loss

"Once again, our sympathies and prayers are with the family and all those affected by recent events," Roddy's statement reads. "Many of our families have faced significant personal challenges this year, let us all continue to care for and support one other."

This past summer at the Euro 2020, Danish star Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest but luckily he survived. After the scary moment, Eriksen was in good spirits but he wanted answers The whole football world was concerned for Eriksen but later happy the worst case scenario was avoided.

“We spoke this morning [Sunday]. He was making jokes, he was in a good mood, I thought he was well,” Eriksen's agent Martin Schoots said. “We all want to understand what happened to him, and he does too: the doctors are making some in-depth tests, but we’ll need some time.

“He was happy, because he understood how much love he has around him. He received messages from the whole world. And he was particularly struck by those in the Inter environment: not just his team-mates who spoke to him in their private chat, but also the fans.

“Christian won’t give up. Him, and his family, want to make sure that everybody receives their thanks. Half the world contacted us, everyone was worried. Now he only needs to rest, his wife and parents are with him.

“Even tomorrow [Monday], he will remain under observation, maybe Tuesday as well. But in any case he wants to support his team-mates against Belgium”.
