NFL Player Keion Carpenter Dead at 39 After Freak Accident

This is so sad former NFL player Keion Carpenter died after a freak accident while playing with his son in Miami.. The family was on vacation..

According to US Weekly:

The NFL player, 39, was in South Florida when he fell while playing with his son. His cousin Jamila Smith told the Baltimore Sun that “they were running to the car when [Carpenter] slipped, fell, hit his head and slipped into a coma.” The athlete died at Jackson South Community Hospital after being in a coma for 24 hours.

“It was just a freak accident,” Smith said. “He was always healthy; he went to the doctor, ate well and worked out.”

The 5-foot-11, 205-pound athlete spent seven seasons with the Buffalo Bills and Atlanta Falcons, beginning his career in 1999. After three seasons with the Bills, he was traded to the Falcons in 2002.

Sad! Condolences to his family!
