A 27-year-old boy died while suffering cardiac arrest during a 21-kilometer run in Torreon. It happened around 9:00 am, in the Paseo del Tecnológico, a route through which a marathon left Ciudad Lerdo.
When the young man identified as Bruno, 27, came close to kilometer 18, he began to feel ill and suddenly fell to the ground.
The runners who saw him called for support and tried to help him, passing quickly by an ambulance with Red Cross paramedics to help him.
Emergency Medical Technicians found that Bruno had suffered cardiac arrest, so they started quickly with resuscitation maneuvers.
