Ashari Hughes Dies: A medical emergency happened to a 16-year-old girl during a high school flag football game in Las Vegas, Nevada. She fell and died. The Las Vegas Review-Journal said that Desert Oasis High School player Ashari Hughes, 16, passed out around 7:30 p.m. Thursday after a home game against Valley High School.
The paper said she was taken to the hospital and died that night. Three days earlier, Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin had collapsed after a heart attack during a “Monday Night Football” game against the Cincinnati Bengals, which millions of people saw.
Officials say Hamlin is now “awake” and making “remarkable progress.” Even though people tried very hard, the 16-year-old student from Nevada could not be saved. The Review-Journal said that registered nurse Aphelia Phifer-Hill wrote on Facebook on Thursday night that she rushed onto the field to help the girl, who was on the same team as her daughter.
“I’ve been a nurse for 26 years, and today was the first time I’ve ever had to do CPR on a child,” she wrote. The paper said that the teen fell after the game, and Phifer-Hill wrote that “everyone was panicking” in the cold and rainy weather. Phifer-Hill tried chest compressions and used an external defibrillator, the report said.
“Her family wasn’t there, but they got there in the end,” the post said. We were able to find the heartbeat. The Review-Journal reported that Phifer-Hill said the teen was taken to the hospital and given a breathing tube before she died. It seems that her post was taken down after the report came out.
On Friday, people talked about how much the 16-year-old girl loved sports. Entrada and Twayne Hughes, the girl’s parents, said, “She loved music, dancing, and being with all the people she loved… She said that football was her true love.
