The story of our hero begins a few days before the events described below. It was then that Paul got a new Apple watch, when preparing to go to a sports Academy in Massachusetts. But he had no idea that a wearable device is so it will help out.

After one of trainings the hole felt heart palpitations. His health confirmed the heart rate monitor built into the Apple Watch, showing 145 beats/min. Extremely high figure even for an athlete. But, worst of all, the tachycardia did not stop even after a long rest. Then in stepped coach boys and took him to the infirmary. As it turned out later, at that moment Paul was experiencing renal failure. Abdominis syndrome, which causes paralysis of all muscles, which can lead to death.

“During one of the workouts I had a hard time breathing and I felt a sharp pain in the back, — told reporters the hole. – At the hospital I was told that even a little bit, and I could die right on the football field”
