Autopsy Today For Boy Who Died Playing Football in Minden

The Douglas County Sheriff's office says Britt Nicholas Mattinson collapsed Saturday morning while practicing with a Douglas County Parks and Recreation flag football team.

The Minden Elementary School third-grader was pronounced dead an
hour later.

The flag football season is scheduled to begin Saturday. Parks and Rec Community Services Director Scott Morgan said no determination has been made about whether the schedule would be changed.

Morgan says players in county sports programs are not required to undergo physical exams. They have to be healthy and there is a standard waiver of liability and consent for treatment.
