Detroit Marathon deaths resonate with Chicagoans

One week after the world-renowned Chicago Marathon, three men died at the 32nd annual Detroit Marathon on Sunday due to apparent heartattacks.

The last death at the Detroit Marathon was in 1994 when a 42-year-old man died of a heart attack, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Rick Brown (65), Jon Fenlon (26), and Daniel Langdon (36) collapsed, Brown and Langdon during the event and Fenlon shortly after finishing.

Chicago Twitter users, like others in the region and across the nation, are shocked by the tragedy and passing along their sympathies.
