A middle-school athlete has been hospitalized after going into cardiac arrest Tuesday during a basketball game.

A Southside Christian School spokesman said Kamari “K Will” Williams, an eighth-grader, “experienced a seizure and cardiac arrest” during the event, according to WYFF-TV.

“By God’s grace, trainer Chris Young was on-site at the game and stepped in to perform CPR for close to 10 minutes until EMTs could arrive,” Denny Vauters told the news outlet. “They were able to stabilize Kamari and transport him to the hospital.”

Vaunters said they are “praising God for K Will’s life, the staff involved in the emergency, and are praying for wisdom for the doctors now trying to understand how and why this happened.”

In a follow-up Facebook post, Rod Shaw Jr. expressed appreciation for the prayers, phone calls and messages Williams has received since the incident.

“As you see in the picture K-Will is doing great and in good spirits,” Shaw reported.

He added that the young man “has no brain damage or organ failure.”
