- Soccer Journalist Grant Wahl Died Suddenly While Covering World Cup: He Bragged About Being Vaxxed And His Physician Wife Publicly Rebuked Anti-Vaxxers
Young athletes, journalists and people from all walks of life continue to “die suddenly” but nobody in the mainstream media cares enough to look into it.
ESPN reports that Grant Wahl, one of the most well-known soccer writers in the United States, suddenly collapsed and died Friday night while covering the World Cup match for NBC and CBS between Argentina and the Netherlands in Qatar. He was 48. And there’s quite a back story that the corporate shills in the mainstream media don’t want you to know.
U.S. media seated next to him said Wahl fell back in his seat in the press box at Lusail Iconic Stadium and reporters immediately called for assistance. Emergency services workers responded very quickly, the reporters said, and they were later told that Wahl had died.
CBS News is reporting it was a heart attack.
The World Cup organizing committee said in a statement, which did not list a cause of death:
“He received immediate emergency medical treatment on site, which continued as he was transferred by ambulance to Hamad General Hospital. We are in touch with the US Embassy and relevant local authorities to ensure the process of repatriating the body is in accordance with the family’s wishes.”
Here is a tweet from his wife:
I am so thankful for the support of my husband @GrantWahl's soccer family & of so many friends who've reached out tonight.
I'm in complete shock. https://t.co/OB3IzOxGlE
