    Default Wrestler Dies on the mat at Mt. SAC Tournament?

    Saw this pop up on Facebook. Any other details?

    Former Northview HS wrestler (Covina CA), wrestling for Rio Hondo College collapsed and died on the mat of the Mt San Antonio College, apparently mulitple attemps to revive him failed. I don't have any other details if it was injusry related or heart attack or what. I believe the wrestlers name was Jesse Cruz.
    John Smith wears women's underpants!

    Did a quick web search and could find absolutely nothing on this. Neither college has anything, nor do the local newspapers.

    The coroner's initial response is that he died of natural causes, although they will perform an autopsy this week. It has been rumored that he had been quite ill prior to the tournament.

    Thanks for the info. He, and his family, will be in my thoughts.
