Autopsy: Player died from acute cardiac event

JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - The Jackson County Coroner confirms that D'Iberville football player Latrell Dunbar died of an acute cardiac event.

Coroner Vicki Broadus says an acute cardiac event can be brought on by many things, including hidden heart abnormalities. However, she believes this was just a fluke event.

Broadus says Dunbar was pronounced dead at the Singing River Hospital at 10:01 Friday night after he collapsed during a football game.
