Miles Kirkland-Thomas, a sixteen year old student who attended Curtis High School collapsed while attending his high school’s football practice. All the students practicing were doing drills, running up the field twelve times and then taking a water break. During the twelfth run up the field Miles fell down to the ground, collapsing where he barely was able to remain awake. An ambulance then arrived on scene where they took Miles into their custody, he was then confirmed to be in cardiac arrest where he was later pronounced dead when the ambulance reached the hospital.
All members in the Kirkland-Thomas family have been mourning Miles death for the last four days. The mother has apparently been crying all of these four days, having no sleep in between each day. The School is even shocked by this death and have held a ceremony today in his honor. New York State rules indicate that if temperatures hit eighty five degree with eighty percent humidity the practice or game must be called off. On this day it was seventy eight degrees with a humidity of seventy five percent. The coach and school has been gaining a lot of back fire saying that students still can’t play in this kind of heat.
Carmen Farina, the Schools Chancellor said the following, “Curtis High is deeply saddened by the death of Miles Kirkland-Thomas. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in the Kirkland-Thomas family. We will be investigating this matter to the best of our abilities with the help of local police. We hope that this family can recover from this tragic event.”
Two dozen students from the University of Minnesota have been cited with underage drinking which took place over the long weekend. The twenty four students located at this house party included each member in the team but none the less this matter is going to be handled by the school and not the police themselves.
Underage drinking in the United States of America has proven to be a massive issue throughout the last decade. When other countries such as Canada have a legal drinking age of nineteen and their citizens don’t prove to abuse that law, it in return angers students in University in the United States of America. This has resulted in underage drinking becoming one of the largest issues in the United States of America.
Police were called to a large house party located near the campus of the University of Minnesota where they found teenagers from the ages of eighteen to just nearly twenty one partying in this small house. None of these students have been charged with underage drinking as the school will be handling each one of these students internally. Curt Wiese, the Minnesota Bulldogs Coach confirmed this issue with a statement.
“It is true that my players were caught underage drinking earlier on this weekend. Some of them will be suspended from a series of games while some of them will be punished more severely. As of right now the university is unknown as to who will be punished as this issue has to be investigated and then acted upon.”
