NEW YORK (AP) — A 30-year-old man collapsed and later died after crossing the finish line at the Brooklyn Half Marathon on Saturday morning.
A statement from the nonprofit New York Road Runners confirmed the man was a participant in the half-marathon and collapsed after finishing the race.
A New York City fire department spokesperson says the runner was taken to a nearby hospital and later pronounced dead.
It was unclear what caused the man to collapse.
