A 6-year-old boy from Georgia died of a sudden heart attack while taking baseball team pictures last week, his family said.
Brantley Chandler was getting ready to take a team picture when he collapsed on the field, his mother, Megan Bryson, told NBC News. He was rushed to a children’s hospital in nearby Chattanooga, Tennessee, but could not be revived. The first grader was born with a rare congenital heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. In a Facebook post, Bryson called her son “a true hero.”
