so my dad just called.
Last night, my second cousin, a year younger than me, keeled over and died.
cause unknown.

Now we never liked each other much, for any number of reasons, so I'm not terribly broken up, but his parents and I got along just fine and he was their only kid, so I feel awful for them.

They're going to do an autopsy on monday to figure out why, but right now all they know is he was feeling dizzy and then he fell over dead.

Scary.
Makes me want to really get back in shape now, I'm starting to get past the age where i'm young enough to skate by on youth alone.
mood: sympatheticsympathetic

Sounds like an aneurysm. Unfortunately those tend to run in families. I hope it was something else.

I'm so sorry. Though you weren't close, it must still be a shock to the system, and surely devastating for his folks.

Eep. That's always sad/scary news no matter what, even for selfish bastards like myself.

Might just be a heart thing, which, you should be happy to know, is really easy to detect once you think to look. (I was checked out for one recently, the whole Holter & echo escapade; that's what most young atheletes who just suddenly die die from, I believe.)
