A player, who was part of the Jackson State football team this past fall, had to be resuscitated. Kaseem Vauls is still in critical condition in the hospital.
He suffered a cardiac arrest on Wednesday, according to multiple reports. According to his father, he had to be resuscitated and then placed onto a ventilator.
William, his father, claims that he went to the hospital on Tuesday with stomach pains. Then, he suffered the aforementioned cardiac arrest on Wednesday.
He also said that his son’s heart was functioning at 10-15% before having surgery.
“What the doctors think happened, that when Kaseem’s heart was failing, that what was giving him the stomach pains,” William told The Clarion-Ledger. “His liver was suffering as fluid built up with toxins in his liver, kidneys and blood. All those toxins built up in his blood stream and his heart could not operate properly and the machine is being used to clean out the blood and toxins.”
Before his cardiac arrest, he had been doing spring workouts with the football team. However, William said that he did not tell any of the trainers of the stomach pains.
Vauls did not play in a game at Jackson State last season. He transferred to the school from Alabama A&M.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
