NFL's Keion Carpenter Cause of Death Revealed

Keion Carpenter tragically passed away while on vacation on December 29 with his family, and his autopsy report has been released.

The 39-year-old former NFL player, who played for the Bills and Falcons, was leaving Black Point Marina in Miami when he was racing his son to the car. Keion is said to have suddenly stopped, grabbed the car mirror, and fell to the ground where he “did not make any attempts to stop his fall, striking the back of his head on the ground,” TMZ reports.

Keion eventually regained consciousness and his wife called 911 but he had a heart attack in the ambulance and passed away two days later. The cause of death was officially listed as bleeding in the brain due to blunt force head trauma. He also reportedly had hypertension but took medicine and ate healthy. It is seemingly a mystery why Keion fell. It is to be noted that he suffered several concussions during his NFL days.

Keion is survived by his wife, Tonia, and four children, Kylie, Kennedy, Kierra, and Kymiah. Our thoughts are with Keion‘s loved ones during this difficult time.

    Damn, so many hard hits on the field, and playing with his son is what took him. It was probably an accumulation of head trauma during his years playing football that contributed this end result.
