  • Niners lineman collapses; CPR performed

    San Francisco lineman rushed to Denver-area hospital
    Associated Press

    DENVER -- San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman Thomas Herrion collapsed in the locker room after Saturday night's game against Denver and was taken to the hospital.

    Emergency workers were performing CPR on the lineman as he was being placed in an ambulance. Coach Mike Nolan said he had no comments about San Francisco's 26-21 loss to the Broncos.

    "There are more important things on our mind than the game," he said.

    Herrion, a first-year player with the 49ers, played college ball at Utah and spent part of last season on the Dallas practice squad.

    Players said he collapsed just after coaches finished addressing players after the game.

    "All we could do is what we know how to do, and that was stand back and let the medical staff do their job," Niners defensive lineman Marques Douglas said.
    According to a station in DEN (KOA?) via 49ersnews.com, he passed on :(

    It's all unconfirmed @ the moment...

        DENVER - 49ers guard Thomas Herrion collapsed in the locker room Saturday night after the team's 26-21 loss to the Denver Broncos and was rushed to a hospital.

        It was not immediately clear the severity of Herrion's collapse or what led to it. The 6-foot-3, 315-pound Herrion, 23, was seen being wheeled out of the stadium on a gurney as a medic attended to him.
        At least they went to the hospital, unlike at Mizzou :angry:

            critical and unstable, that doesn't sound like a promising condition.

            And still nothing on why?

                  It certainly does...these Niner boards are going bonkers, so it's hard to discern what's right/wrong w/out hearing it...

                      DENVER - San Francisco offensive lineman Thomas Herrion collapsed in the locker room and died Sunday morning, shortly after the 49ers played the Denver Broncos in a preseason game.

                      Herrion, a 6-foot-3, 310-pound guard, was on the field for San Francisco’s 14-play, 91-yard drive that ended with a touchdown with 2 seconds left.

                      Players had finished listening to coach Mike Nolan address them in a postgame meeting when Herrion collapsed. Medics administered CPR on him and took him to an ambulance that rushed him to a nearby hospital.

                      About three hours later, 49ers spokesman Aaron Salkin confirmed that Herrion had died. The cause of death was not immediately known.
