JACKSON, MS (WLOX) - The Ocean Springs football player who collapsed on the field this week in D'Iberville is in stable condition. But the 15-year-old is still undergoing tests so doctors can learn more about his condition.
WLOX News spoke with Tyler Free's mother Thursday morning. She told us the doctors said Tyler did have a heart attack on the field. But he was revived so quickly there appears to be no brain damage.
The ninth grader was initially sent to USA Medical Center in Mobile, but was later airlifted to Blair Batson Children's Hospital in Jackson.
An account has been set up at Bancorp South to help with Tyler's medical expenses. If you'd like to donate, just stop by any branch and ask for the "Benefit for Tyler Free."
