Woman collapses, dies during Sigma Run

(Jamaica Observer) – Thirty-six-year-old Alicia Prince yesterday collapsed and died on Sunday while participating in the annual Sagicor Sigma Corporate Run.

Relatives told the Jamaica Observer that doctors at the Andrews Memorial Hospital, where Prince was rushed by medical personnel who were on the scene, said that she died from an apparent heart attack.

Prince, an employee of the National Commercial Bank, collapsed on West King’s House Road — nearly a mile from where the charity race began on Knutsford Boulevard in New Kingston.

“She just drop down mid-flight. We all have to go test our heart,” said Myrna Cameron, who was identified by relatives as Prince’s mother.

Cameron and her relatives were assembled at the hospital outside a room where Prince’s body lay under a sheet on a bed.
