Allow us to close with a newspaper clipping:
A Judge in Tallahassee, FL, approved a two-million dollar settlement between Florida State University and the family of Devaughn Darling, a football player who collapsed during an off-season workout and died on Feb. 26, 2001 of an apparent cardiac arrhythmia at age 18.
The suit claimed Darling was deprived of water and other fluids during conditioning drills. It also said that the University failed to provide sufficient rest periods during the workouts and did not have adequate medical personnel or equipment available.
How could such a thing have happened at an American university in the 21st century?
