Well, Here’s One Teen Sports Death We Can’t Blame on the Vax

What the heck?

New York Post:

The Connecticut high school hockey player who died this week after his neck was slit open by a skate during a tragic incident on the ice has been identified.

Teddy Balkind, a 10th grader at the St. Luke’s School in New Canaan, was fatally injured Thursday night during a private-school matchup.

During the game, Balkind fell to the ice. As he lay on the ground, another player who was near him was unable to stop in time, and the two collided, officials said.

The game was immediately stopped and the young hockey player was rushed to Greenwich Hospital, where he died from his injuries, police said.


Looks like he was a good kid.

But still – pretty epic way to go out, no?

Maybe I’m just a morbid person, but my whole thing is that we need to all understand that we’re going to die some day, and be aware of it always. Thus, I do regularly take note of “epic deaths.”
