Fan suffers heart attack at end of Michigan game
The end of the Michigan-Michigan State game on Saturday was extremely stressful and probably caused many fans to have metaphoric heart attack. Apparently it also gave a fan an actual heart attack (not the guy pictured above).
ESPN’s Dan Murphy reported the news shortly after Michigan State’s stunning 27-23 win:
A fan at Michigan Stadium had a heart attack on the final play of the game. Currently in stable condition at University Hospital.

University of Michigan public safety spokesperson Diane Brown confirmed that a fan was taken to the hospital via ambulance.
“We did have one heart attack at the end of the game in the stadium,” Brown said via CBS Detroit. “Emergency medical personnel got to that person right away and were able to take that person to the University of Michigan emergency department for further treatment.”
Brown told MLive’s Jeremy Allen that they went into the stands at the end of the game to perform CPR. Though she did not provide an update on the fan’s condition, Murphy reported the fan was stable.
