Autopsy: Football player died from heart problem, not heat

An autopsy finds that a 15-year-old high school football player was the victim of an “abnormal heart rhythm” and not heat-related illness. Joshua Ivory Jr. died of cardiac dysrhythmia, which triggered “sudden cardiac arrest.” The 15-year-old collapsed on the first day of fall football practice at Macon’s Southwest High School.
