Fit and Healthy Boy, 14, Dies from Cardiac Arrest While Running in Florida

A 14-year-old boy from Florida, who had no known health issues, died suddenly after suffering from cardiac arrest while running a 5K in the Sunshine State.

The teen began experiencing cardiac arrest during the run at Everglades High School in Miramar, Florida, reported NBC 6 South Florida.

The teen was rushed to the Memorial Miramar Hospital but tragically died.

The teen was identified as Knox MacEwen, The New York Post reported.

Miramar police told NBC6-South Florida that Knox went into cardiac arrest during the run at Everglades High School Saturday morning.

Wionews reported:

According to GoFundMe, the student was Knox MacEwen, who participated in the JROTC program at Western High School in Davie, Florida.

He also volunteered at his church in the kids’ ministry.

The fundraiser stated:

“This family has been through the unimaginable, as this has happened as Knox’s mom, Julie, is still physically and financially recovering from a hard-fought battle with cancer this last year.”

Jimmu Arrojo, the principal of Western High School, said:

“I am saddened to share tragic news impacting our Wildcat community. One of our JROTC students passed away this morning after being transported to the hospital.”

“I want to offer my deepest condolences to his family and loved ones, teachers, and classmates as they mourn this great loss.’

“I ask our Wildcat community to rally around the family in prayer and support during this time of deep sorrow.”

MacEwen’s pastor at Crossway Church in Cooper City said the teen was loved by many.”

“Knox’s dad said to me a couple of days ago that Knox was the best of us, and I love that phrase because if you knew Knox, that’s who he was, right?” Pastor Jon Elswick said.

“This is a teenager who, when you think about him, you think of a loving kid, a caring kid, a funny kid.”

An “abrupt and unexpected loss of heart function leading to loss of consciousness and collapse” is what causes a sudden cardiac arrest, a potentially fatal emergency.
