14 Year Old Boy Who Collapsed at Basketball Practice Dies

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The 14-year-old La Center, Wash., boy who collapsed during a middle school basketball practice on January 3 died Monday at a Portland hospital.

The parents of Cody Sherrell issued a statement thanking first-responders and the staff at Legacy Emmanuel Medical Center. They also thanked people who had offered support and said, “Cody was a quiet boy. It’s brought us such joy to know he touched so many lives.”

Coaches had performed CPR but Cody remained in critical condition until his death.

Meanwhile, a Salem boy who collapsed Friday at a youth basketball practice has improved to good condition at Oregon Health & Science University Hospital in Portland. Isaac Arzate had been listed in critical condition.
