Woman Died While Competing St. Anthony's Meek and Mighty Triathlon

LNT,
A 44-year-old woman died on Saturday while she was competing in the St. Anthony’s Meek and Mighty Triathlon at North Shore Pool. Felecia Williams suffered from a heart attack while she was competing junior level competition in St. Petersburg. It is a prelude race to the larger St. Anthony’s Triathlon on Sunday. This is the first fatal death in the history of triathlon, said St. Anthony’s Triathlon spokesperson.
As informed by her family, Williams was trying to improve her own health after her brother died of heart failure in the month of September. She was the third child of seven siblings and one brother was at the pool to support Williams’ goal to complete the race.
The report stated that Williams became unresponsive when she was completing her seventh or eighth pole lap. A volunteer nurse intervened and attended to Williams then signaled to the on-site medical crews of the emergency situation. CPR was performed on her at the pool itself. Then she was taken to St. Anthony’s Hospital where she was declared dead at 9.42 a.m. by the hospital spokesperson.
