    Children should not run Marathons!

    OMG Friday, 06 February 2015 11:27 AM

    Throwing water at those who run marathons should be stopped immediately, as it will reduce the body temperature abruptly, and interfere in the functions of organs.

    Having an ambulance, trained paramedic/doctor and defibrillator on standby is a solution to sudden-cardiac deaths which are often the cause of such deaths. However, can each and every race afford to have these facilities? Maybe time to consider..

    This is a very tragic incident which could have been prevented by subjecting every participant of the race to a thorough exercise tolerance test prior to participating in the race.

    No - if the runner wants to cool off they should use the water themselves, a small amount of water is not going to lead to multiple organ failure! Keep hydrated while running.It is very, very sad to hear of a runner loosing is life.
