DELTA SWIMMER COLLAPSES AT NATIONAL SPORTS FESTIVAL

A swimmer representing Delta State collapsed on Monday after completing his event at the ongoing National Sports Festival in Benin City.

Medical personnel at the venue attended to the swimmer and were able to resuscitate him, before attempting to take him to the hospital.

However, officials of Team Delta turned down requests by the medical personnel to have the swimmer taken to the hospital.

One of doctors, who identified himself as Dr S. Elamah, told journalists that after stabilising the athlete, the officials from the state didn’t heed their medical advice.
