Sudden Death Strikes Another Student in Houston

February 19, 2007–HOUSTON, Texas – Mike Ndiribe, 18, a Grayson County College (Denison, Texas) student collapsed during halftime at a basketball game at Hill College north of Waco last Wednesday. He was transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital where he was declared dead an hour later. While Hill College had an automated external defibrillator (AED) that might have been used to save Ndiribe’s life, potential rescuers did not know where to find it. And while Grayson College also has AEDs, an athletic trainer from Grayson equipped with an AED did not travel with the team. Ndiribe, a native of Austria, was a college freshman who previously played varsity basketball at Fort Bend Bush High School.
