It happens in sports, not often, but just out of the blue to perfectly conditioned athletes who exert themselves athletically daily until some unseen flaw in their body suddenly blows and it all goes horribly wrong in seconds. Just weeks ago we saw it on the pitch in the U.K. with Fabrice Muamba, who miraculously survived a major cardiac arrest during an FA cup match. Now, Piermario Morosini, in his Livorno match against Pescara today, just thirty minutes into the match. Only Morosini did not survive.

Just plain horrible.
