Attempted suicide at Dania

There was an attempted suicide at Dania about 15 years ago where a guy tied an electrical extension cord around his neck and then jumped with the cord being tied to something on the third floor. Some players, J Echaniz, Blanco and some others saw it happen and rushed out of the court area pulled him down. The jump never snapped the guys neck because it was a rubbery extension cord.

About 35 years ago and older amateur player named Dan had a heart attack on the court at North Miami and died in the middle of a point. The previous day I saw him in the mezzanine at Dania getting very upset over losing a playoff. Probably years of getting beat down at Dania combined with other factors contributed to his heart attack.
