Wrestling student dies during training in Moline, IL

A 20 year old wrestling student, Jonah Snyder, died this past Thursday at a Moline, Illinois gym.

According to a family friend, Snyder was at a professional wrestling training facility known as the Black and Brave Wrestling Academy, reportedly run by Colby Lopez, aka Seth Rollins.  

Rock Island County coroner, Brian Gustafson reports Snyder was training with eight other people when he started to feel ill. According to the coroner, the trainers instructed Snyder to sit down, and his condition became worse. At that point trainers called 911. After EMT's arrived, Snyder went into cardiac arrest and was taken to the hospital. He was pronounced dead a short time later at Genesis Medical Center.

An autopsy was performed on Friday and was inconclusive, according to Gustafson. The Police Department in Moline is conducting an investigation.
