How an ordinary netball match in 2014 ended in heartbreak…
Twenty-seven year old Beth Leske was playing a typical game of netball with her team, Fairy Meadow, in Berkeley, Wollongong when she suddenly slumped to the ground.
The young mother had shown no signs of being unwell and despite attempts to revive her, she died in hospital. Paramedics confirmed that she had suffered Sudden Cardiac Arrest.
Unfortunately, Beth’s story is not uncommon in Australia. Thousands of people don’t realise that they may have a condition that can cause Sudden Cardiac Arrest. In many cases, the first symptom of this disease is death.
