Jamaican stretch curtain Kemoy Campbell has been taken to sanatorium after collapsing during a men’s 3,000m during a Millrose Games in New York.
Campbell, 28, was behaving as a pace-setter when he collapsed and fell into a infield after a second spin only over a 1,000m mark.
He was given medical courtesy by a side of a lane and afterwards carried out of a track on a stretcher.
The contestant is in a fast condition in hospital, according to reports.
However, organisers have nonetheless to yield central information on his condition.
The Jamaica Gleaner, quoting a athlete’s representative Ray Flynn, pronounced Campbell had to be regenerated by defibrillator before being taken to an complete caring unit.
“We were all repelled to see what happened, though appreciate God, he is doing better. He has his partner and his hermit beside him,” Flynn told a newspaper.
