SC State's Solomon released from hospital after collapse
(TSX / STATS) -- South Carolina State guard Tyvoris Solomon was released from a hospital on Thursday, five days after collapsing during a game against North Carolina State.
Solomon was rushed to a hospital in Raleigh, N.C., after his heart stopped beating in the first half of the contest.
Solomon's family thanked South Carolina State athletic trainer Tyler Long and first responders for saving the player's life in a statement released through Rex Hospital on Thursday.
"We've also heard from so many well-wishers throughout the Carolinas and the country. The outpouring of love from N.C. State fans has been especially welcome. Thank you for your prayers and support," Solomon's family said.
The family statement indicated the plan is for Solomon to "rest and recover" at home.
Solomon's collapse occurred with 13:08 to play in the first half of a 103-71 loss to the Wolfpack. He was taken from the arena on a stretcher and play resumed after a 40-minute delay.
