Ex used to guide and constantly had issues with people who really should have picked a different run or not run due to health. If I recall correctly one loss in the last couple years, the individual had a pacemaker. Sad these consequences come about, but personal responsibility comes into the picture too.

Articles like this omit these facts, and should include cautions for customers knowing their limits. Very biased article, but most news is biased anymore.
