RHS teen died of heart complications, Medical Examiner reports

Taylor Dorman, the Ramona High School sophomore who died April 10 after he was struck in the chest by a softball, had a viral infection in his heart, the county Medical Examiner’s Office has reported.

The infection, combined with an enlarged and weakened heart, caused him to go into sudden cardiac arrest, the office stated.

The 16-year-old was playing the game “over the line” in physical education class around 11:20 a.m. at school when he was accidentally hit in the chest by the softball. Although he continued to play, about 20 minutes later he collapsed. He was flown to Palomar Medical Center where he died later that day, which was his birthday.
