EPIX EMAIL ALERT

Hyperthermia in Runners

 

On Sunday, April 13, 2014, 42-year-old Robert Berry ran in the National Osteoporosis Society marathon. It was his last race.

 

According to his wife, Berry "trained meticulously for the marathon" which he was participating in to honor his mother. During the last 250m of the race Berry started to stumble. He collapsed 40m from the finish line. Medics tried to cool him with ice packs and IV fluid but he was later pronounced dead at St. Mary's Hospital in London of hyperthermia. (Garvey, 2014)
