Utah State player who collapsed grateful for trainer's quick action, tired after hospital stay

A tired but grateful Danny Berger says it is a "miracle" he will be back watching his Utah State teammates play only days after collapsing on the court and being revived by an assistant trainer.

Berger was released from a Salt Lake City area hospital Saturday and back in Logan, flanked by the trainer credited with saving his life and a father who thought the worst upon receiving word of Tuesday's life-threatening incident while driving in the middle of the Nevada desert.

Berger won't play in Saturday's game against Western Oregon, but holds out hope of returning to the court. He says the earliest could be six weeks.

The 22-year-old Berger met with the media, his left arm in a sling to protect the miniature defibrillator in his chest.
