Corey Stringer. Formerly of the MN Vikings
The early symptoms of heat illness include:
Corey Bechler was more than halfway through conditioning drills Sunday when witnesses said he began looking winded and pale. Trainers took him to the training room, administered fluids and summoned an ambulance.
"As he lay there," Hargrove said, "he got worse."
IF alert, give the person beverages to sip (such as Gatorade), or make a salted drink by adding a teaspoon of salt per quart of water. Give a half cup every 15 minutes. Cool water will do if salt beverages are not available.
For muscle cramps, give beverages as above and massage affected muscles gently, but firmly, until they relax.

Everyone who is around youth baseball should be aware if this life threatening condition
Comotiocordis, literally concussion of the heart, can cause sudden cardiac death of a young person following a blunt impact to the chest.
Impact with items like a baseball, softball, or hockey puck or a collision between players, such as in lacrosse, or karate
young (95% male, 78% female under age 18; (62% organized, 38% daily routine and recreational activities).
While most people believe a high-energy impact is required to cause comotiocordis, that is not necessarily so.
Some victims had structurally normal hearts with no heart disease, the strikes occurred over the heart at a precise moment, resulting in ventricular fibrillation, cardiac arrest or cardiac sudden death.
A strike at the vulnerable time of the heart cycle, between beats, can trigger an abnormal rhythm.
Any blow to the chest, regardless of its intensity, velocity or force is capable of producing cardiac arrest. Unfortunately, comotiocordis can be 84% fatal. Early recognition of the arrest, CPR, and early defibrillation seem to offer the best chance of survival.
The 16% of patients who survive a comotiocordis event have three things in common:
1. Early recognition of the arrest
2. Treatment with CPR and early defibrillation
3. Survival rates rapidly drop to zero when interventions are delayed.
