I do know about it, including the statement from a cardiologist afterwards that nothing abnormal was found. Until then I thought he had suffered a lethal arrhythmia and a Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD) episode, but that would have been excluded by the testing that must have been done.
As a result I don’t know what happened, nor can I comment on whether you are at risk, but read this and see if it fits your situation. Just so you know, the heart disease that predispose to SCD in young athletes is very rare (from 0.2 to 0.7%):
Meanwhile it shows how important it is that people know about CPR!
Hope this helps,
