California Softball Player Collapses On Field After Succumbing To Brain Aneurysm

On Saturday, a 15-year-old California softball player died on the field after succumbing to brain aneurysm. During the game, Dana Housley told her coach that she felt dizzy and then collapsed on the field.

Her family and teammates hoped that she would survive the incident, but on Wednesday night her family announced that she was not able to make it, according to Yahoo News.

In a statement posted by California Thunder, Housley’s softball team, her family said, “Tonight our beautiful Dana chose to go with the Lord. We don’t yet understand his plan for her, but she will make a perfect angel.”

The family also said in a statement posted to a GoFundMe page, “The tremendous national and international outpouring of love and support for our daughter and our family during this devastating ordeal is appreciated beyond words.”

Softball players and internet users took to social to pay tribute to Housley using #PrayforDana, #DanasMiracle and #IplayforDana.

Housley’s family said, “We will feel pain and emptiness at the loss of our baby girl, but we won’t have to feel it alone. We will not forget your love, prayers, and support, nor will we ever forget the wonderful memories of our little girl, Dana Housley #21.”

Angelo Michaels, her coach, told ABC station KABC-TV in Los Angeles that Housley was a “spectacular” player.

“She never had an off day,” he said. “I don’t mean on the softball field I mean she just always had a smile, always gave 110 percent and great teammate.”

According to CBS Local, Housley had completed her freshman year at Etiwanda High School in Rancho Cucamonga.
