a terrible blight on our fine country
Real hero of the game
"Are you a nurse? Can someone get help? Everyone back up!"
Amongst the cheers, these request took awhile to get noticed. I looked to see a man slumped over, then lay back motionless. People around began to respond. A couple men took action. They layed the fan out and began CPR. The man had his adult sons with him. Medics soon came with an AED, but the quick actions of the heroic fans brought breath back to the ailing fan. He was carried off by strecher. He appeared to come out of the situation 'ok.' Being in the medical field, It appeared to be a MI, heart attack. I'm sure treatment and recovery time will ensue.
But thank you, you quick acting souls in sect 6
That the real hero of the game was Gary Gray.
What a story. Thanks for sharing. Glad to know he appeared to be okay.
The responding fans really are heroes.
That game was really hard on the heart. Can't believe someone actually had a heart attack though. Hope he's ok. Props to the people who did CPR and the medics. I also can't believe I didn't see this because I was in Section 5.
We were row 58. He was couple
I lied. I was in Section 6 not 5. Plus I was only 14 rows above you so I really don't know how I didn't see that.
Thank you for sharing that he was ok.
Great work fans, ems and everyone. Speedy recovery.
real gyro of the game
Wow, that sucks.......that he had to miss the game. Glad he was alright though.
We saw a little commotion, but I couldn't make anything out. Really glad to hear everything turned out ok.
Those of you in Section 6 just like I was, wow. There are some blue-hairs in that section if I've ever seen one. There were people who refused to stand up even while Michigan was on defense.
Glad to hear that these fans were able to help out. It's always encouraging when people reach out and help those in need . . .
I saw medics also come down into section 35 near row 3 or 4. Anyone know what happened.
The Free Press reported that one fan did have a heart attack and was in stable but critical condition at the hospital. Hopefully he will make a successful recovery and be back in the stands soon.
Wow, same thing happend at the OSU game I went to with my dad. Hes a huge OSU fan. Kind of odd.
Weird enough that was actully my Grandpa my 2 Uncles and my Dad. He ended up being ok but is still in the hospital because all of his ribs are still broken. Also oddly enough we are Notre Dame Fans and it was Michigan fans who helped him. So besides the ND - Michigan game i will always be cheering for Michigan.
That is awesome to hear. I am so happy for you and your family!
His team lost, but a diehard Notre Dame fan who suffered a heart attack while watching the Wolverines beat the Fighting Irish in Michigan Stadium got the biggest win of his life on Saturday.
Leo Staudacher, 69, of Bay City, was cheering for Notre Dame Sept. 10 when he felt sharp pain in his shoulder during the second quarter. The retired investor thought he had heartburn or indigestion. But his heart stopped beating; he sat down and passed out.
Luckily for Staudacher, fans sitting near him knew CPR. A dentist from Trenton began chest compressions. Others called over medical personnel stationed at the game, who took Staudacher to the University of Michigan Health System for treatment.
