Boy Struck in Chest at Ball Game Fights for Life

June 9, 2006 - WAYNE, NJ - Twelve-year old Steven Domalewski was pitching in a Police Athletic League game in Wayne, NJ, on June 6th when he was struck in the chest by the ball, leading to commotio cordis, a cause of sudden cardiac arrest in children. Several onlookers provided cardiopulmonary resuscitation. While there was a defibrillator at the ballpark, it was not used since professional help arrived quickly, according to PAL officials.

Only 15% of the victims have been resuscitated, according to the U.S. Commotio Cordis Registry.

For information on commotio cordis, see www.la12.org and www.suddendeathathletes.org.
