Tragic Day in Philly: Two Runners Die Running Philadelphia Marathon

Bad news out of Philadelphia earlier today as two marathoners died during the 18th annual Philadelphia Marathon.

One was a 21-year old who died at the finish line and the other was a 40-year old who collapsed less than 1/2 mile from the finish.

From the Philadelphia Inquirer:

According to a source, the 21-year-old male is Jeffrey Lee, a California native. Mr. Lee was a senior nursing and business student at The University of Pennslyvania.

Both were rushed to the hospital where they passed away from heart attacks.

Several others were sent to the hospital out of the 25,000 runners that ran the race.

The deaths add to number of those that have already died at marathons this year.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to the families of these two.
