There was some optimism that he would pull through after falling into critical condition on Monday. Doctors stated that he responded by squeezing their hand when they asked him to. Everyone thought that he might be able to pull through but unfortunately it was reported that he died very early the next morning.
A situation like this really makes you put life into perspective. Sean Taylor was only 24 years old and despite the fact that he had his problems in the past, many people who were close to him stated that he was growing a lot since the berth of his 1 year old daughter. It is unfortunate because now she will never get to know her father.
Police are investigating this homicide. When more develops it will be reported on SportFiends. My condolences go out to his family and all of the Redskins. The NFL will honor his memory in every game this week.
RIP Sean Taylor (1983 – 2007)
