KOLKATA: A 23-year-old pupil of National Law University of Odisha (NLUO), and son of an Indian Revenue Service (IRS) professional from Odisha’s Bhubaneswar, collapsed and died while taking part in a soccer match organized at the Sports Authority of India (SAI) grounds in Salt Lake on Saturday. Sources said sufferer Ritwik Das reportedly suffered a unexpected cardiac arrest throughout the match and was once taken to Salt Lake AMRI Hospital the place he was once declared introduced dead.

The incident is the second this month when a player collapsed on the box and gave up the ghost a while later. The sufferer on February 2 was once a 30-year-old goalkeeper from Bankura.


Das, a fifth-year pupil of integrated law, had come from Bhubaneswar a couple of days in the past to take part in the sports activities phase of the continued annual fest organised by means of National University of Juridical Sciences (NUJS), Kolkata. The soccer match was once on when Das collapsed round 3.50pm. The health facility government informed the police that the exact explanation for death was once unknown as but and had to be ascertained after an post-mortem. The Bidhannagar South police have initiated a case of unnatural death.

NUJS government confirmed that Das had come to the campus to take part in the fest, titled ‘Outlawed’, that began on Friday. The fest, which has an exclusive sports activities phase known as ‘Invicta’ the place soccer is a big draw, was once known as off after the incident.

Doctors said unexpected cardiac death (SCD) can happen to a young person in the course of an lively carrying task like soccer or swimming. In contrast to cardiac arrest, the place there are chances of the resuscitating the patient, SCD provides no such scope.


While a crucial chest trauma throughout a carrying task is likely one of the maximum common reasons of unexpected death, the 23-yearold didn't sustain such an harm. Dr Sunip Banerjee, heart specialist at SGCARDIAC Care, identified reasons that cause unexpected death throughout lively sports activities, which integrated unexpected chest trauma, undetected pre-existing electrical abnormality of the heart and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy — in which there's an ordinary thickness in a portion of the heart.


“Also, with an build up in physical task, the quantity of a hormone known as catecholamine that is launched in the blood can build up. This could cause chaotic contraction of the heart, inflicting unexpected cardiac death,” he defined.


Most SCDs are led to by means of heart rhythm known as arrhythmias, probably the most deadly being ventricular fibrillation which is disorganized firing of impulses from the ventricles. This renders the heart not able to pump blood, inflicting death within mins. “That is why one will have to go in for a thorough screening before getting into a carrying task that requires numerous physical movement. Some conditions can also be detected,” added Banerjee.


NLUO registrar Yogesh Pratap Singh said Das have been the convener of the university’s sports activities society for 4 years and was once a good soccer player. “Das had bronchial asthma. The autopsy was once performed on Sunday morning and his oldsters are bringing the frame again,” he added.
