First, I'm sorry for the man and his family. It is certainly very sad.

Now, as so often before we'll see the media and Couch Potatoes pile on claiming this is proof that exercise can be and often IS fatal... One step forward and two steps back.

We have to expose the real truth!

Very tragic story, I'm very saddened for his family. A couple years ago I witnessed a man collapse from a heart attack in a local race that I was in - he was helped by a nurse and a doctor who happened to be running close to him. He did survive.

Unfortunately heart events happen, while running, while sleeping, while driving a car, while doing just normal everyday stuff - and that is why we know the importance of getting the word out about knowing one's risk factors..... and as far as I know exercise (especially walking - which I think is what this guy was doing) is not a heart health risk factor - I'm in agreement with Dave - you know that somewhere this story will swing in the wrong direction......

No need to run. You can drop just walking out the front door. Just yesterday my brother was heading out to work and saw his neighbor lying on his driveway. He ran over and did CPR and got him breathing again before an ambulance came. He found out later the guy didn't make it.
