(NBC) – A Texas high school football player collapsed and died in his twin brother’s arms while playing tag Friday night, his family said.
Deshaud Williams, 16, a defensive tackle on Lewisville High School’s junior varsity football team, was running around with family and friends in a parking lot Friday night when he told his twin brother, Dashaud, that he had lost his breath.
“We started jogging a little bit more and he was like, ‘Da, I can’t breathe,’” Dashaud told NBC Dallas-Fort Worth.
“I was like, ‘You good? Come on, we’re going to get home.’ And he was like, ‘I can’t breathe. I’m about to pass out.’ And I ran to him and he fell to his knees and fell on his back,” Dashaud said.
