20-Year-Old College Basketball Player Dies After 'Cardiac Event'

University of Wisconsin-Whitewater basketball player Derek Gray, 20, recently died after suffering from a “cardiac event,” according to his coach.

Gray’s coach Pat Miller told WKOW that the tragic incident occurred on July 24 while the 20-year-old was volunteering at a summer basketball camp, where more than 100 children from ages 10 to 17 were attending.

When Gray collapsed, Miller initially thought that his player was suffering from a seizure but realized it was more serious than he initially thought.

“It was just a very surreal situation where you’re thinking, ‘Okay, he’s going to be all right,’ and then you’re very scared, and the longer it went on, it became apparent that this was extraordinarily serious,” Miller told the local outlet.
