Percy Harvin’s Heart Stopped When He Collapsed At Practice Last Month

Percy Harvin

Remember last month with Vikings receiver Percy Harvin collapsed during practice? Well, he opened up to NBC’s Andrea Kremer about that day and the whole thing was just as scary as we thought it was.

When Percy Harvin was in the hospital after collapsing at Vikings practice in August he says his heart stopped beating for ten seconds. At that time doctors suspected he was not getting enough oxygen while sleeping.

Four days after he was released from the hospital, Harvin underwent an overnight sleep test. He says that during the test his heart stopped beating eight times. He was then diagnosed with sleep apnea, a disorder that affects breathing while sleeping.
