4. US Lacrosse advocated for the presence of an automated external defibrillator (AED) at all lacrosse practices and games in the wake of an incident involving a high school lacrosse player, Peter Laake, last Friday.

Laake, a freshman defenseman, was struck in the chest with a shot. He collapsed on the field and immediately received medical attention. In addition to Loyola Blakefield’s training staff, two doctors came from the stands to assist with administering an AED on the field.

Read more about the incident and new equipment US Lacrosse is mandating in hopes to prevent commotio cordis.
