A Retrospective Study of the Effect of an Athlete's Sudden Death on Teammates.
Henschen, Keith R.; Heil, John
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v25 n3 p217-23 1992
Investigated psychological effects of teammate's exercise-related sudden death on 10 remaining team members at end of collegiate careers (4 years later). Findings indicated initially similar responses from teammates (shock and disbelief); mixed reactions concerning influence of event on individual lives; deep emotions during interviews; and diversity of defense mechanisms used by teammates to deal with traumatic life events.
