Daily Breeze Reporter on my beat not expected to live

I’ve been off the beat for a while chronicling lost corners of New York before my imminent departure (expect pictures) but I had to jump back into the mix for a minute to share this terrible (and haunting) news.

I find this incredibly upsetting. Kevin of LA Observed reported Thursday that Nguyen Huy Vu, the guy who took the beat I declined when I left the Breeze to come to Columbia this fall, has suffered irreversible brain damage after an infarction during a soccer game in Santa Monica. HOLY SH*T.
