Yeah your right Richard,

It goes to show your next day may be your last
despite what disciplines you place on your body.

It is sad whenever a human being passes away.Life viewed as a sport vs the opposite.However here is the pinnacle of the sport where people involved are more exposed to risks than in normal life.Beside this I want to thank Crash for this article: losing a life from the backstage is as sad as one of a star.RIP Raniero Gianotti !

To die is tragic, but at age 46 is doubly sad. Just shows how fragile we are. We can take nothing for granted, its almost scary....My heart goes out to the guy and his family.

How can we say a trainer or physio is fittest? Doctors r not the fittest humans in our society. He wasn't an athlete.
U r right. Maybe he had an untreated heart condition.

We don't know
