Tragedy

Postby spodog » Tue Aug 05, 2008 10:56 am

In an October of 1971 game between the Detroit Lions and the Chicago Bears, Lions receiver Chuck Hughes tragically collapsed and died of heart failure while returning to his team's huddle after an incomplete pass play.

Upon his collapse, who was the first player on the field to get to Hughes and alert the sideline that Hughes was in trouble?

Answer: Dick Butkus of the Bears was the first to reach Hughes. Lions team doctor Richad Thompson attempted, unsuccessfully, to revive Hughes on the field.
