Fund Started For Family Of Minn. Basketball Player

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A fund has been set up to help the family of a Minnesota high school basketball player who collapsed during a game last week.

Seventeen-year-old Zach Gabbard of Perham collapsed Thursday evening during a game at Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton High School. Gabbard is in critical but stable condition at University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview. He was transported to the hospital on Sunday.

Gabbart’s family is thanking nurses and doctors who resuscitated him at the game and his friends for their support.

A fund has been set up to defray the family’s costs not covered by insurance. Checks can be made out to “The Zach Gabbard Fund” and mailed to United Community Bank, 155 2nd St. S.W., Perham, MN 56573.

    I bet if it was a dog or animal everyone would be posting comments and jumping in to say what they could do to help like when that k-9 in Roseville got stabbed and was in critical condition it was like everyone came together with suggestions on how they could help.

    Has the world really become that insensitive to human life, sad.
