A 46-year-old woman has died after falling off the last line of the Los Angeles Marathon, the race’s first death since 2007, organizers announced Tuesday.
Trisha Paddock of Rancho Palos Verdes was running the 13.1-Mile Charity Challenge where all participants were raising funds for one of the official charities of the race.
Los Angeles Fire Department personnel met with Paddock at 12:10 a.m. Sunday because of a medical complaint that led to a cardiac arrest, LAFD Capt. Eric Scott said Sunday.
“Rapid medical assistance was provided by more than a dozen staff, including the LAFD Bicycle Team, and the patient was treated quickly and taken to a local hospital,” Scott said.
A GoFundMe paddock was set up to help the family with medical bills and other important expenses.
