A nine-year-old Perth boy sadly collapsed and died playing junior basketball. His family have said he had no existing medical conditions that could have warned of his death.
Tyreez Mundroina, 9, was playing with the under-11s, Lakeside Lightning team, on Saturday morning when he collapsed on the court at half-time in front of teammates, parents and spectators, reports 7 news.
His family have said he had no existing medical conditions that could have warned of his death.
They have paid tribute to the “awesome” Tyreez, who would have celebrated his 10th birthday on Sunday:
“The family would like to clarify that Tyreez had no pre-existing medical conditions, they want to thank all families and staff of Lakeside Basketball for their immense love and support and a special thank you to Wesley College in South Perth for making him the awesome boy he was, and teaching him the core values that took him through his short-lived life.”
WA’s basketball community and friends are in shock by the sudden death of Tyreez and are leaving shoes and basketballs at their front doors in tribute.
Our thoughts are with Tyreez family and friends. RIP little buddy.
