A male UCF student collapsed and suffered a seizure in BA2 on Feb. 16.

Reporters on the scene heard medical officials say the student was transported to Florida Hospital.

A few months ago, another UCF student named Michael Namey also collapsed suddenly in class. Namey collapsed due to an irregular heartbeat caused by an enlarged heart, resulting in his sudden cardiac death, according to a medical examiner report provided by the Volusia County Medical Examiner’s Office.
