(CNN) A 32-year-old runner died Saturday after finishing a half marathon in Brooklyn where 15 others were injured, police and fire officials said.
An official cause and manner of death should be released in the coming days, the New York City’s Office of Chief Medical Examiner said.
The marathoner was found unconscious, lying on the pavement, having collapsed after crossing the finish line just before 9 a.m. in Brooklyn’s Brighton Beach neighborhood, NYPD Det. Arlene Muniz told CNN.
He immediately received attention from on-site medical staff before being transported to Coney Island Hospital, according to Brooklyn Half Marathon organizer the New York Road Runners (NYRR). The runner was pronounced dead at the hospital at 9:44 a.m., Muniz said.
