Footage Surfaces of Dive Team Pulling Louis Nix’s Car Out of Pond Hours Before His Death Was Confirmed (VIDEO)

Louis Nix, one of the most beloved Notre Dame football players to ever grace the field, has shockingly passed away as his mother confirmed the tragic news on Saturday evening.

Hours before his death would be confirmed, a dive team would find and get his 2014 Hyundai pulled from a pond.

The cause of death is unclear. He was 29 years old.

In December, Nix was shot while putting air into his tires and was rushed to a hospital.

“I just got shot,” Nix said in the live video. “I was putting air in my tires. If I don’t make it, I really do love everybody. I can’t contact nobody right now. I love y’all, man. If I don’t make it, this is the only way I can tell all my family members. My phone is about to die.”

The following morning, he would update his condition.

“I’m alive everyone,” said Nix. “The bullet that hit me ricocheted off my sternum into my lung. Surgery is the next step so keep praying. Thank you all for the positive energy and prayers.”

Nix played for Notre Dame from 2010-14 and was selected in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans.
