About 20 students from the Dom-Gymnasium suffered a circulatory collapse at the sports festival in the Savoyer Au.

How could this happen?

Freising

– According to the BRK, around 20 students from the Freisinger Dom-Gymnasium collapsed at a sports festival in the Savoyer Au in Freising on Monday.

Before and during a – voluntary – 800-meter run, the children developed serious circulatory problems.

The seven school paramedics who looked after the sports festival were finally overwhelmed with the situation and alerted the rescue control center.

Three BRK ambulances and an ambulance rushed to the sports facility on the Isar.

After the children had recovered, they were picked up by their parents.

A day later, people at the Dom-Gymnasium are still wondering why so many children collapsed in such a short time.

Everything went smoothly in the morning

"Up until 11 a.m. everything went really smoothly," reports senior director Manfred Röder about the sports festival for the fifth to eighth grades as part of the national youth games.

The classic three-way battle - long jump, throw, and sprint - went off without incident, "aside from the odd bee sting."

Then, even before the 800-meter run was held - the first children got circulatory problems.

As a result, some students were advised not to take part in the 800-meter run.

During the endurance run, which was carried out on a voluntary basis, further cases were added.

The seven school paramedics - high school students specially trained in first aid plus a teacher - were finally overwhelmed by the large number of cases and called the emergency services.

He rushed to the sports field on the Isar with three Sankas and an emergency doctor.

Children were treated in the shade

According to BRK district manager Albert Söhl, around 20 children had suffered a circulatory collapse.

They fell over, and some were no longer responsive for a short time.

The children were immediately treated in the shade, reports Söhl - and then apparently got back on their feet.

In any case, none of the children had to be taken to the hospital.

The school then informed the parents concerned, who then picked up the children to continue caring for them at home.

"The whole thing went smoothly," summarizes Söhl.

After the incident, however, the question of the usefulness of school sports festivals at the hottest time of the year arises for him once again: "You should talk to the school authorities here," says Söhl.

The fact that children fall over during sports in the greatest heat is not an isolated case.

Again and again the children were not up to the exertion in midsummer.

Did the children drink enough?

In addition to the heat, the children usually drank and ate too little.

The combination is dangerous.

"Why can't you do the sports festivals in autumn or spring?" And he also doesn't understand why you start a long-distance run at lunchtime of all times: "Why not do it early in the morning.

As a teacher, you should pay attention to this when planning.

Then at noon you can shot put.”

Headmaster Manfred Röder points out that it wasn't actually too hot for school sports: "It was overcast again and again".

The German weather service indicates a maximum temperature of 27 degrees for Monday.

Nevertheless, Röder admits that moving the school sports festival to May or October is definitely worth considering.

The ozone pollution may also have been a trigger for the circulatory problems, although this value was not too high in Freising either.

"School paramedics acted prudently"

"In the future, you will probably have to pay even more attention to how much the children have actually drunk" and not just trust the information provided by the children.

Röder has praise ready for his school paramedics: They acted very carefully and informed the emergency services in good time.

"It was right to get external help here."

In the meantime, all affected school children are apparently well again.
