Oklahoma man dies after suffering heart attack at K-State game

An Oklahoma football fan died after suffering an apparent heart attack at Saturday’s game against Kansas State.

David Adams, director of Riley County emergency services, said paramedics were called to the stadium for a patient experiencing chest pain, and the fan collapsed after they arrived.  He was treated at the scene and taken to a Manhattan hospital across the street from the stadium, where he was pronounced dead.

The Wichita Eagle reports the man was seated with friends and family at Bill Snyder Family Stadium when he collapsed shortly after Oklahoma took a 10-0 lead in the first quarter.

The man’s name has not been released.
