Cartier Woods tragically lost his life this week after he suffered cardiac arrest playing basketball.
The 18-year-old had been on life support at Henry Ford Hospital since the end of last month when he suddenly collapsed on the court. Once he collapsed, someone administered CPR while paramedics used an Automated External Defibrillator on him and rushed him to the hospital.
The teen was hospitalized and put on life support, the family said. On Monday, the family stated he had passed away.
His aunt and legal guardian Dwanda Woods previously told 7 Action News that Cartier has been playing sports since he was 10 and had dreams of continuing to play in college next year.
“No one can stop him. He just loves playing football, and basketball. That’s his number one goal of what he wanted to do his whole life,” Dwanda Woods said.
Dwanda Woods says her nephew had no known heart conditions. She says paramedics delivered CPR for 40 to 60 minutes after he collapsed.
Cartier Woods’ family created a GoFundMe page to help cover his medical expenses.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
