Another unfortunate and classic tale of sudden cardiac arrest taking the life of a young, seemingly healthy child. And another example of the journalist never once mentioning what it is called when the somebody collapses because their heart spontaneously stopped beating. It is called sudden cardiac arrest. It is not an unknown phenomenon, it happens all the time and the underlying heart conditions that cause it are easily detected with an EKG.  We are so sorry for the loss of this wonderful young girl.
