Tribute to the ‘physically fit’ man, 23, who collapsed and died in front of the team at a football game
There were tributes for a “physically fit” man who collapsed and died in front of his team at a football game.
Morgan Brick, 23, who had autism, was playing for Gloucester City PAN – a team that gives people with disabilities the opportunity to play – when tragedy struck.
Rescue workers rushed to the Gloucestershire Football Association pitch in Almondsbury on Sunday.
Shortly after kick-off, Morgan informed the referee that he was feeling ill before collapsing moments later.
Sadly, despite the best efforts of the paramedic, his trainer and the hospital staff, Morgan died after what was believed to be a heart attack.
