14 Horses Collapse and Die
In one of the weirdest stories of the year, 14 full size horses collapsed and died Sunday before they were scheduled to compete in a polo match. The horses were going to play polo in Florida when 2 horses collapsed before the match. Doctors tried to revive those horses and while doing so 5 others got dizzy and collapsed. A total of 7 horses died at the scene of the polo match. The other 7 died en route to the hospital. It is not yet known what caused the horses to die. Typically there are over 50 to 60 horses that compete in the polo matches. They are constantly being subbed out so that no one horse gets too tired. These horses never made it to the match. Doctors are now running blood samples and attempting to figure out what could have caused such a bizarre event. Blood tests results and the cause of the deaths are expected to be released this week sometime.
