MIAMI (AP) -A male fan in his mid-70s has died after collapsing at the NCAA tournament site in Miami.
The man from the Fort Lauderdale area was pronounced dead Friday night shortly after arriving at the hospital, a spokesman for Miami Fire Rescue said.
The man's identity was not released.
He was not breathing when paramedics reached him at his seat about 20 rows from the court as Arizona warmed up to play Utah. They performed CPR at the scene and all the way to the hospital, but the man was unresponsive, said Lt. Ignatius Carroll, spokesman for Miami Fire Rescue.
The man was carried out of AmericanAirlines Arena after briefly being treated there.
