The Rise of the Medical Emergency, Pt. 79 - Aug 19th - Aug 20th Reports
Football players, a soccer player, a pilot, a wife, mothers, a swimmer, a teen, and a copper find new paths in life. If they're alive. It's TROME
‘New York Giants tight end Tommy Sweeney collapsed during practice on Wednesday but was in “stable” condition after being carted away from the field, the club said.
Sweeney “had a medical event and is under the care of medical professionals in the Giants athletic training room,” the team said in a statement. “He is stable, alert and conversant.”’
‘It’s not immediately clear whether there’s a connection between Sweeney’s health history and Wednesday’s episode.’
‘He spent his first three seasons with Buffalo, where in 2020 he was diagnosed with myocarditis — an inflamed heart — after contracting COVID-19.’
That was in November of 2020.
I’m sure we have the capacity to differentiate between shot damage and covid damage at this point. It really shouldn’t be a matter of guessing.
From what we’ve been hearing about myocarditis, it seems perfectly reasonable that a 3 year-old myocarditis bout could turn into a sudden collapse. But we can be sure in the meantime he’s loaded up on the pathogenic part of the covid virus, with each shot making the chances of sudden collapse more and more likely. One thing covid definitely does NOT cause is immunity from shot damage.
Well, they included a bonus section. The-sky-is-falling TROME:
‘Weather conditions were not extreme during practice, with temperatures in the area ranging from the mid-60s to upper 70s.’
What a relief.
‘MIAMI -- A high school football player from American Heritage suffered a medical emergency during a game against Booker t. Washington Friday night.
According to CBS News Miami's news partners at the Miami Herald, paramedics were seen performing CPR on him.’
It was cardiac arrest:
‘American Heritage School’s head athletic trainer said he wants the public to know that helping to save the life of a player who suffered a cardiac arrest during a football game was a team effort that required training and preparation.’
Good for them.
I want the public to know it was the shots.
‘Dagenham & Redbridge have provided an update on their striker Inih Effiong after he collapsed on the pitch following the Daggers’ 1-0 defeat at Maidenhead United this afternoon (Saturday).
The medical emergency occurred in the aftermath of the final whistle at York Road, as Maidenhead’s players celebrated the 1-0 win given to them by Reece Smith’s 58th minute strike.
A concerned hush quickly descended around the ground as the player was treated by medical staff from both teams. An ambulance was called, and paramedics continued to treat the striker on the pitch before he was taken to hospital.
This evening, Dagenham released a statement regarding the incident. It read: “Following the final whistle today, Inih Effiong was treated on the pitch by the physios and medical staff.’
‘Two men have sadly lost their lives after being involved in an Ironman event in Co Cork, Ireland, this morning.
For those unaware, an Ironman is a popular triathlon event that involves a series of long-distance races over a total of 140.6 miles.
And while many thousands enjoy them, unfortunately there has been a tragedy in one of the events on Sunday (20 August).
The two men who have tragically died were involved in separate incidents during the swimming segment of the race held in Youghal.
The men, one in his 40s and the other in his 60s, were pulled from the water by emergency services in a bid to rescue them.
But tragically, they were both pronounced dead shortly after by medical personnel.’
Having a hard time keeping planes in the sky these days.
‘Michigan State Police officers in Huron County are investigating a small plane crash that occurred just before noon Saturday morning.
Troopers from MSP's Third District were dispatched to the plane crash near Murdoch and Caseville Roads in Bay Port, a community in Michigan's Thumb region.
The plane, a crop duster, was taking off near the intersection and crashed in a soybean field, according to state police. It was at least the third small plane crash in Michigan in a week.’
‘Also on Saturday, the pilot of a small plane was forced to make an emergency landing at about 8:20 a.m. in Brighton.
The plane landed in the water and the pilot received only minor injuries. Officials said the pilot was traveling from Pontiac to Tennessee when he lost his engine.
On Tuesday in Lansing, a small cargo plane crash-landed shortly after taking off, officials said. The plane's pilot was also uninjured.’
So, the cause of the one crash was the loss of engine power. The other two aren’t so clear.
‘Matt Riddle and Misha Montana are expecting a baby, but things have apparently not been easy for her. She recently updated fans on X to let them know about a really rough patch that she just went through.
Misha Montana has been forced to deal with a few unfortunate things since announcing that she is expecting a child with Matt Riddle. That included having to clear up that she is really pregnant with Matt Riddle’s child. Sadly, she had medical issues to endure as well.
Matt Riddle’s significant other posted on X to reveal that she recently got through a rather serious medical issue. Thankfully, their baby is okay, but it has been a very difficult pregnancy for her.
I wanted to share an update. I was waiting to do so for some good news. Baby is perfectly healthy and happy bouncing around, so we are blessed for that. Waking up at all is a blessing. My body is having a very hard time right now. It’s been a difficult pregnancy and these bizarre situations keep springing up and unfortunately present unforeseen challenges.
I would like to explain more when I’m over this hurdle and have more definitive answers than questions. There is slow improvement and I hope to be out of the hospital sooner than later. The doctors and nurses are doing everything they can and I am grateful for them.’
‘Thankfully, Misha Montana seems to be doing good […]’

‘FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – An unrestrained teenager was ejected from the car he was driving and sustained fatal injuries early Saturday morning, the California Highway Patrol says.
The CHP says its officers and medical emergency personnel were dispatched to a single-vehicle car crash on the eastbound side of Highway 180, east of McCall Avenue, around 2:40 a.m.
Investigators say the 17-year-old driver was the only person in the 2015 Toyota Camry and was traveling on State Route 180, approaching McCall Avenue, when the car drifted off the roadway and careened into a light pole at full speed. They also say it doesn’t appear he tried to correct his path of travel, nor did he try to break, before colliding into the pole.’

Officers say a toxicology report will determine if drugs and/or alcohol were a factor in the crash.’
