Texas Hockey Coach, 29, Dies from Coronavirus Complications Just Days After First Feeling Unwell

Tyler, 29, assumed he had common cold, which he usually contracted in late summer from going back and forth between cold ice rinks and the Texas heat, his wife Aimee told the New York Times.

The young father experienced nausea the first night, then over the next two days had other symptoms ranging from sleeplessness to shortness of breath to body aches and migraines, his wife explained to newstation WFAA.

On the third day, when their daughter Rylee went to swimming lessons, Aimee checked on Tyler and found him unresponsive.

In an effort to get some rest during his illness the hockey coach had taken a sleeping tablet, however, according to the medical examiner, the pill combined with COVID-19 slowed his heart, eventually causing it to stop, his family told the outlet.

I haven't really heard much-probably needs some study

4. Wow, shows it is important to go to the doctor when you get something

Maybe they would have warned against the sleeping pills? I have never heard of that negative effect of taking sleeping pills with COVID-19. Wonder what he had for sleeping pills? Doctors don't like to prescribed those too much anymore. They consider them controlled substances.

5. I mean, what?

"which he usually contracted in late summer from going back and forth between cold ice rinks and the Texas heat"

Oh, is that how the common cold works? I hope I don't catch the consumption for staying too late out on the moor.

8. Swings in humidity mess with the immune system

A very dry ice rink and the hell humidity of Texas summer can do it. Especially if he was changing between the two frequently.

9. Yeah, it's not caused by a virus anymore, it's caused by going outside without

a coat or scarf. Do try to keep up.

10. or the dropsy from sitting on cold cement.

At 29 years old, he's way too young to think a cold comes from temperature change. Ya know, like getting "cold"? LOL
That's what my born in 1910 Mama thought.

11. Viruses that cause colds may spread more easily in lower temperatures

 

Viruses that cause colds may spread more easily in lower temperatures, and exposure to cold and dry (e.g., an ice rink) air may adversely impact the body's immune system.

No doubt, you'll pass this all on to the widow. Really got it going on these days, eh? "I mean, what" indeed...

A young, healthy husband and father loses his life, and it's all so unnecessary!
