A high school flag football player in Vegas dies after passing out on the field

According to the police, a female high school student who was participating in a varsity flag football game on Thursday at her school passed away after suffering a medical emergency and collapsing during the game. The girl was named as Ashari Hughes, who was 16 years old, and the Clark County coroner indicated that an investigation into the circumstances surrounding her passing was ongoing.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Desert Oasis High School Principal Ian Salzman stated in an email that campus staff members immediately provided medical aid after Hughes collapsed, until paramedics arrived during the school’s home game against Valley High School. The incident occurred during Desert Oasis High School’s match against Valley High School.

Jesus Jara, the superintendent of schools for the city of Las Vegas, issued a statement expressing the district’s condolences to Hughes’ family, friends, and loved ones. Jara expressed their profound sorrow by stating, “The death of this young life greatly saddens us.” “When something terrible happens, it has an impact not only on that school but on the entire family that is the Clark County School District,”

After a professional football player, Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin, went into cardiac arrest and was resuscitated on the field during an NFL game on Monday against the Cincinnati Bengals, the death in Las Vegas came amid heightened attention to the health of athletes. Hamlin was playing for the Buffalo Bills against the Cincinnati Bengals.

After having a breathing tube removed, Hamlin was able to speak and was breathing on his own while recovering in a hospital in Cincinnati, where his agent claimed on Friday that Hamlin was breathing on his own and was able to communicate.
