In September, 20 year old Jonah Snyder passed away after a “medical emergency” occurred during a training session at The Black & Brave Wrestling Academy in Davenport, Iowa. The Buffalo, New York native reporting feeling ill and his trainers had him stop the exercise in which he was participating. When his condition didn’t improve, they called 911. Snyder had gone into cardiac arrest by the time paramedics arrived, however, and he was pronounced dead at the hospital. An autopsy reportedly was unable to shed any more light on the situation.
