GLYNDON, Minn. (AP) – A high school basketball player who collapsed during a game in western Minnesota remained in critical condition after undergoing heart surgery.

Perham player Zach Gabbard collapsed Thursday evening during a game at Dilworth-Glydon-Felton High School. A defibrillator was used on Gabbard before he was rushed to Sanford Medical Center in Fargo, N.D

The family has been updating CaringBridge.org, a website used to inform people about a patient’s condition. They posted that he had surgery Friday. A post Saturday morning said he remained in critical condition, after “up and down moments throughout the night.”

A Friday night post said he was “not out of the woods yet” and asked for thoughts and prayers.
