Divide County football player returning home after going into cardiac arrest during game

BISMARCK, ND (KFYR) — A high school football player’s life was saved by medical staff last week during a game in Surrey.

Divide County School Superintendent Dr. Sherlock Hirning said senior Ole Svangstu returned to the group and collapsed.

Hirning said Svangstu went into cardiac arrest. Medical staff performed CPR and used a defibrillator before transferring him to Trinity Hospital in Minot.

He was also transferred to the Mayo Clinic where he remained in intensive care.

Hirning said Svangstu was now at home.

“We are lucky that it turned out for the best and that the proper medical care and technology was available to resuscitate him,” Hirning said.

An auction flyer for Svangstu posted on social media says “medical staff are working to identify the cause and create a plan of action.”

The auction will take place on Saturday evening at 7 p.m. inside the Crosby Moose Lodge.

The Maroons will host Hope-Page Friday night at 7 p.m.
