Young footballer’s sudden death shocks small Victorian town

A young country football player is being mourned after collapsing and dying at the end of a match near Ballarat yesterday.

The man, aged in his 20s, had just finished a match at Learmonth oval when he told team mates he wasn’t feeling well.

Shortly after 4.00pm, he walked over to the sidelines where he collapsed.

Paramedics and club staff made efforts to revive the Dunnstown Football Club player, but he died at the scene.

The Central Highlands Football League released a statement saying “members are shocked at the tragic death of a Dunnstown reserves player”.

The statement said the man, whose name has not been released, collapsed at the end of a game and that nothing within the match led to the player’s death.

“Despite the best efforts of club staff and paramedics he was not able to be saved,” the statement read.

The organisation also offered support to members affected by the tragedy.

In May, 22-year-old Tory Brunning was playing a rugby match in Sydney’s Illawarra region when he collapsed in the sheds during half-time.

He was unable to be revived.

Last month, Liam Birch a young AFL player in Wallan, Victoria, suffered a heart attack on the field in the middle of a match.

One of the spectators was able to save his life by performing CPR on the young man.

No further information has been released on the man’s health or any prior medical conditions from yesterday’s tragedy.

The club has requested the privacy of the player’s family be respected at this difficult time.

Police are not treating the death as suspicious and a report will now be prepared for the coroner.

First Aid and CPR Safety Tip – Sydney Northern Beaches

Even though running isn’t a contact sport, injuries and accidents can happen. There are few things worse than a gravel-encrusted knee or a muscle cramp that takes you out of the game. But what do you do if you’re far from home with limited resources when they happen?

Here are eight first aid tips every runner should know about and carry with them, whether you’re just going out for three easy miles on back roads or you’re racing a 50K on the trails.

1. Clean Cuts and Scrapes Right Away
One wrong step can lead to an open cut that derails your run, and although it’s tempting to push through, you should tend to it first. “The best thing to do is stop the bleeding, and clean and protect the area,” says Katie Lawton, an exercise physiologist in Rehabilitation and Sports Therapy at the Cleveland Clinic.

Jacob Erickson, a sports medicine physician at the Mayo Clinic, agrees. “Make sure to clean the area as soon as you are able with hydrogen peroxide or warm, soapy water. If you only have a bottle of water, that water will suffice,” he says. “Use some type of antibiotic ointment or plain petroleum jelly to keep the area moist. You can keep it exposed if it’s not draining, otherwise keep it covered until the drainage stops or is better controlled.”

If you don’t have supplies readily available, Lawton suggests using a T-shirt—especially if the wound is gushing. “Tear off a piece of your shirt and tie it on the area for compression,” she says.

2. Don’t Pop Your Blisters
We know: It’s the most tempting thing in the world to pop a blister, but it’s best to leave it alone. “To cut or ‘pop’ the blister can increase infection risk,” says Patrick Lank, M.D., assistant professor of emergency medicine at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.

Cleaning your blister off with water can also make things worse, according to Lawton, because the combination of sweat and water has the potential to create more blisters. Instead, use gel blister pads or petroleum jelly to speed up healing.

3. Stay Hydrated
It’s easy for newbies and even experienced runners to lose track of hydration as factors like heat and humidity change. “Severe dehydration can cause lightheadedness, loss of consciousness, and confusion,” Lank says. “If you feel you are becoming dehydrated, it’s best to stop running, rehydrate, and give yourself time.”

You may also experience muscle cramps if you’re dehydrated, Lank adds. If this happens, Corey Wencl, L.A.T., athletic trainer at the Mayo Clinic, suggests you stop running and stretch the muscle out or massage it for some relief.

To prevent dehydration, Lawton recommends having salt or electrolyte tablets on hand—they’re easy to add to your water bottle. However, “be aware that some gel packets have caffeine, which is also a diuretic, and could be a cause for dehydration,” she says.

4. Always Apply Sunscreen
Lawton says applying SPF prerun is a must. But if you do end up with a bad burn, your first move is to get out of the sun. “Find a way to properly cover up your skin or seek shade,” she says. If it’s too late, you can find sunburn relief with aloe vera spray with lidocaine. “Do not use petroleum jelly, as this can trap the heat in that the body is trying to release,” she says. Drinking a lot of water is also key because burns can increase your risk of dehydration, adds Lank.

5. Stock Your Car With Supplies
You can’t realistically carry every first aid product with you on your run, but make sure to keep a kit in your car. “Have a single-use ice pack or elastic bandage on hand for bad sprains,” Lawton says. You also can’t go wrong with some Band-Aids, blister pads, and chafing cream.

6. Run With a Friend
It may sound obvious, but running solo can be risky in case of an emergency. So if you plan to run a more remote route, ask a friend to go along, suggests Wencl. If not, you can utilize safety features in certain apps and phones to have a close friend or family member keep track of you during your run.

7. Let Someone Know Your Plans
When running solo, be sure to share your specific plans. “Let family members know what time to expect you home by and the location where you will be running, especially if you don’t like running with your phone,” Lawton says.

8. Know When to Call 911
“If you lose consciousness while running, you should immediately seek medical attention,” Lank says. The same goes for a friend or running partner. “And if you develop abnormal chest pain or difficulty breathing, you should immediately stop running call 911 to be brought to the hospital for evaluation.”

First Aid – Shark, Bear and Snake

THIS guy is lucky to be alive – but otherwise he has the worst luck imaginable, after a series of terrifying run-ins with deadly animals.

WHEN Dylan McWilliams was bitten by a shark in Hawaii on Thursday, it meant he had been bitten by a shark, a bear and a rattlesnake — all in less than four years.

“I don’t know,” Mr McWilliams told the Honolulu Star-Advertiseron Friday. “I’m either really lucky or really unlucky.”

Not surprisingly, the 20-year-old from Grand Junction says he spends a lot of time outdoors.

In Thursday’s attack, about 50m from Shipwreck’s Beach off Poipu, Mr McWilliams suffered deep cuts to one of his legs, but the injury wasn’t life-threatening, reports Fox News.

“The scariest part was swimming back,” he told the news outlet, adding that he was hoping the shark wouldn’t continue following the trail of blood from his leg.

The leg wound required seven stitches, the Star-Advertiser reported.

Last July, McWilliams told the paper, he received nine staples in his scalp after a nearly 140kg bear invaded his Colorado campsite.

“The bear grabbed the back of my head and started pulling me and I was fighting back as best as I could,” he told Hawaii News Now. “It dropped me and stomped on me a little bit, and I was able to get back to the group and they scared it away.”

As for the rattlesnake, that encounter occurred about three-and-a-half years ago in Utah, Mr McWilliams told the Star-Advertiser.

Luckily, he took in only a small amount of venom, so he was only briefly ill afterwards, he told the newspaper.

“My parents are grateful I’m still alive,” he said.

How to deal with common accidents

Tips for parents when littlies are in the wars

WITH discovery and exploration in babies and children come falls and bumps.

Here’s what to do if one of these common accidents happens to your child.

BURNS AND SCALDS

PUT the burnt area under running water from the cold tap as soon and leave it there for at least 20 minutes.

Never place anything else on the burn – ice, creams and butter do not help. Get medical help if the burn is bigger than a 20 cent piece, looks raw or blistered or is on the face, neck or genitalia.

CHOKING

CHECK first if your child can breathe, cough or cry and, if so, see if they can dislodge the item by coughing, clearing the mouth or lying them forward.

For small children, tip them upside down. If this does not work, call 000.

POISONING

SIGNS of poisoning can include stomach pains and vomiting, drowsiness, trouble breathing, change of skin colour, blurred vision or even collapse.

Don’t give your child anything to eat or try to make them vomit. Pick up the poisons container, if you have it, and call the Poisons Information Centre on 13 1126.

TOOTH KNOCKED OUT

IF A baby tooth gets knocked out, there’s little chance of saving it, but you should always go straight to the dentist regardless.

In most cases, baby teeth come out because they are loose. See your dentist to ensure there are no cracked pieces of tooth left that can potentially cause infection and damage to the tooth that will come through.

If an adult tooth is knocked out it may reattach to the bone, but this is less likely with very young children. However, still retrieve the fallen tooth and either put it in milk or get your child to hold it in their mouth inside their cheek until you get to the dentist.

NEAR DROWNING

IF YOUR child is unconscious, unresponsive and not breathing, start resuscitation if you know how.

Any first aid you know is better than nothing. Call 000 and the operators can give you advice on how to administer first aid while you wait for the paramedics to arrive.

OBJECTS IN EAR, NOSE

DON’T try to remove a small object stuck in your child’s ear or nose as you may make the situation worse.

Go straight to your doctor to have it removed safely.

POKE IN THE EYE

A FINGER, a fork or a tree branch can cause damage if poked into a child’s eye.

Keep the child calm and check if they can open their eye. If the eye is red, sore or irritated, go to a doctor.

BUMPS AND FALLS

APPLY ice or a cold pack immediately to any bruise, bump or swelling.

If your child is in extreme pain, can’t move a limb or is unable to put pressure on an area, they may have fractured a bone. See a doctor.

JAMMED FINGERS

IF THERE’S bleeding, apply pressure and if there’s bruising, apply ice. If they are in extreme pain and can’t move the joint, you will need to get medical help.

Saving a life with CPR is ‘really, really easy’ and more of us should try.

http://www.abc.net.au/news/health/learn-cpr-saving-life-easy-is-really-easy-emergency-experts-says/7247748

If someone’s collapsed, is not responsive and not breathing, would you know what to do?

If a person’s like that, it means their heart’s stopped (which doctors call a cardiac arrest).

It’s not good news.

But if someone around knows what to do, they can save a life. That person can be you.

You can save a life really, really easily.

All you need to do is learn CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation). Basically, it’s pressing on the person’s chest with your hands.

Once you’ve recognised someone’s heart has stopped, the number one thing to know is that you can’t do any harm.

It’s impossible to hurt someone in cardiac arrest because they’re already dead.

What if you break their ribs? Who cares! Would you rather be alive with a broken rib or dead? It’s that simple.

Can you be sued? Absolutely not. The law is very robust and you won’t be sued for having a go.

Worried about how many breaths to do? Don’t be. Hands only is fine.

All you have to do is press hard and fast in the centre of the chest with the heel of your hand.

If you’re still not sure how fast, Stayin’ Alive from the Bee Gees is about the right beat.

You need to act fast because every minute that goes by without anyone doing anything reduces the odds of survival by 10 per cent.

At 10 minutes, if no-one’s done anything, the person is dead. At about four minutes, irreversible brain damage starts setting in.

So even if an ambulance is called straight away, there’s a good chance help will arrive too late.

But doing CPR means that person may be able to hang on until help arrives. That’s because CPR pushes blood up from the person’s heart into their brain.

Restarting a heart

CPR will help keep someone alive, but restarting a heart needs a defibrillator. Many buildings have portable defibrillators (also known as AEDs) that anyone can use. They give voice instructions to tell you what to do. A helper should always look for one while CPR is done. It’s in your hands.

Some 30,000 people have a cardiac arrest in Australia each year and 90 per cent of them will die.

Cardiac arrest kills more people than lung and breast cancer, trauma and stroke all combined.

It’s not just common and lethal. It’s a problem everyone can do something about right now.

It needs all Australians to learn how to press on someone’s chest.

It needs the two hands at the end of your arms. And that’s it.
