Report:Brace suffered cardiac arrest

While the initial reaction to Ron Brace's death was sadness, there was also plenty of confusion. What caused such a young man die so suddenly? Throw in the lack of details and many were left to guess. Now the Globe is reporting that Brace died of a heart attack.  

There was no mention in the article if he had a previous heart condition nor his current weight. But even at his playing size, Brace was putting plenty of stress on his body and heart. Head injuries remain the focus of current and former football players. Maybe Brace's tragic death will get others to address size and weight for those no longer playing the game.

Whether you are a football player or not - nobody can carry around that kind of weight long term without bad consequences. The heart can only do so much before it blows a gasket. We are all given a 4 cylinder engine and you can't use it to power a cement mixer.

So was it cardiac arrest or heart attack? Cardiac arrest is an electrical issue while a heart attack is usually caused by a plumbing problem. A heart attack can cause a cardiac arrest. While it is unusual for a 29 year old to have clogged arteries, it is becoming more and more common due to obesity and poor lifestyle factors.

At any rate, this is a very sad story. A young man has lost his life and his family is left to mourn. I remember him as a great ambassador for BC and my thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
