GARLAND (CBSDFW.COM)- A couple of Garland High School coaches are credited with helping to save a player’s life after he collapsed during an indoor drill last week.
It turns out, the student had an undiagnosed heart problem. Doctors at Medical City Children’s Hospital implanted a defibrillator in his chest Wednesday. Now, everyone is breathing easier.
By all accounts, Richard Young was healthy. He was 15-years-old. He was a freshman on the Garland High School football team, #82.
So, it was a shock when he collapsed during an indoor drill at school last Wednesday, April 18th.
