PORTLAND, Ore. – A 12-year-old Oregon boy who survived a heart attack during basketball practice three months ago has died after collapsing at baseball practice.
Fire officials say some of the same paramedics who helped revive Isaac Arzate in January rushed to his school Friday night and tried again to save him. Marion County Deputy Medical Examiner Rodge Womack confirmed Monday that the Salem boy died later at a hospital.
After his first collapse on Jan. 6, Arzate survived when fast-acting coaches performed CPR and called the paramedics. He had surgery days later to repair a heart defect.
