(SNews) – American corporate “news” outlet USA Today has issued a warning to parents that heart attacks can also “happen to children.”
USA Today is raising the alarm in response to 24-year-old Buffalo Bills star Damar Hamlin suffering a near-fatal cardiac arrest during last Monday night’s game.
Hamlin, who had no known health issues, narrowly avoided death when his heart suddenly stopped on the field.
After being resuscitated twice, the young athlete spent days in intensive care and is now pulling through.
In wake of the shocking tragedy, USA Today took the opportunity to warn “parents of kids in sports” that the same thing could happen to their child.
While failing to note how unusual it is for a 24-year-old athlete to suffer a heart attack, the outlet attempted to normalize the incident and claim that children also face the same risk.
In a Thursday article titled, “Cardiac arrest can happen to children. What parents of kids in sports should know,” USA Today reported:
Damar Hamlin’s collapse during Monday night’s football game was a sobering reminder to parents of children participating in sports: This could happen to anyone.
It’s still unclear what exactly caused the Buffalo Bills player’s heart condition.
Every year, sudden cardiac arrest claims the lives of over 2,000 children and teens in the U.S., according to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
This accounts for about 3% to 5% of all deaths in children aged 5 to 19.
“Everyone’s at some potential risk,” said Dr. Gul H. Dadlani, division chief of cardiology at Nemours Children’s Health in Orlando, Florida.
“The same thing could happen to a high school student or the non-athlete who’s just at home.”
Countries around the world have been suffering huge spikes in heart attacks and sudden deaths in the past two years.
USA Today offered no explanation for why children are now at risk from cardiac arrests but still warns that “this could happen to anyone.”
“Although sudden and unpredictable, health experts say there are ways to reduce a child’s risk of suffering a potentially fatal cardiac arrest,” the outlet reveals before urging parents to get their children tested for heart issues.
The USA Today piece also comes as a host of studies over the past few years have claimed everyday activities, including skipping breakfast, gardening, climate change, sarcasm, pandemic stress, artificial sweeteners, and video games, can lead to heart attacks.

These warnings from the corporate media come as Covid jabs for children were given the green light by the FDA and CDC last month.
Before it was approved for kids, “Pfizer added a secret heart attack drug to the children’s version” of its COVID-19 vaccine, according to The Expose:
When the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine was granted an EUA from the FDA, its ingredients list was published online along with other safety data.
The list included the now excluded ingredients sodium chloride and potassium chloride and includes the additional ingredient Tromethamine.
Tromethamine (Tris) is a blood acid reducer which is used to stabilize people with heart attacks.
Here are known side effects: Respiratory depression – local irritation- tissue inflammation – injection site infection – febrile response – chemical phlebitis – venospasm (vein spasms) – hypervolemia – IV thrombosis – extravasation (with possible necrosis and sloughing of tissues) – transient decreases in blood glucose concentrations – hypoglycemia, and Hepatic Necrosis with infusion via low-lying umbilical venous catheters.
