A high school football player died on Tuesday morning in New York. He collapsed on the football field while the team held practice at the private school.

After collapsing, he later died. Dominick Bess was going to be a freshman at Mount Saint Michaels Academy, an all-boys prep school in the Bronx.



Medical personnel arrived at approx. 9:30 am after Bess reportedly went into cardiac arrest. He was treated at the scene, before being transported to a local hospital.

When he was at the hospital, he died. The school, nor the hospital, has released a cause of death at this time.

There was a heat advisory for the area. However, it did not go into affect until noon despite the humidity making it higher than 80 degrees.

“Our hearts break for this young man’s family,” New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Twitter. “We should prohibit sports practices during heat waves.”

According to Mount Saint Michaels, they have 800 students. In addition, they have a grass field, where it is believed that the team was practicing that holds up to 3,000 people.

“[It’s] heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends, as well as coaches, the team and our student-athletes,” the school said.
