But on the courses, we always refer to volunteers as victims: "Could I have a victim please? Thank you Mike. Now, I'm going to stick this needle....."

Why not call him "the patient" ?

Casualties want recognition that they have been injured; they want the injury to be treated seriously. So, personally, I prefer to call them "casualties".
If someone at camp has a gut infection, then he is my "patient". But if he has a broken leg 500m underground (my line of first-aid), then I'm going to be calling him "casualty"
(Though the break had better not be his femur, otherwise I'm going to be calling him "dead" pretty soon.)
Fortunately I've had more patients than casualties so far

Wow. That's really sad.
It's sad to think about we're all gonna die. It could be any second, or in 100 years.

IT is very sad news indeed.
It does not frighten me to die during badminton..............Atleast if it happens to me I will die while doing something I love and there is nothing i love more than badminton. For me i would much rather that than die in my car going to a job. I live for badminton. without it i have nothing. it is my life.

There also was an incident that was life threatening.
It happened last week so tonight i will find out if he is ok.
An old guy at the stadium who is around 60-70 years old fell flat on his lower back......and somehow broke his 'pace-maker' he laid motionless but moaning very painfully......the whole stadium stopped.
I hope he is ok.....really nice man.......I was amazed when told he had a pace-maker.......he plays very well!
Hopefully tonight someone will say he is ok.......I hope so

MAN, 58, DIES AFTER LEISURE CENTRE HEART ATTACK
Published on 22/04/2006
KEITH CHAPMAN TRIBUTES have been paid to a keen sportsman who collapsed and died following a game of badminton.
Keith Chapman, 58, of Barnes Avenue, Dalton, suffered a heart attack on Tuesday evening at the Park Leisure Centre, in Barrow.
Staff alerted paramedics and an ambulance arrived at the centre just before 8pm. Mr Chapman was rushed to Furness General Hospital, where he later died.
Mr Chapman’s son Glyn, 31, was one of those to pay tribute to his father.
He said: “He always had time for everybody and was very well liked. He was a trusted friend and colleague to a lot of people.
“My dad loved sport and encouraged me. He was competitive and always wanted to win."

Someone earlier in the thread commented about the disease that causes sudden fibrilation of the heart and causing it to sometimes stop.
One disease known to cause this is named Supraventricular-tachycardia. It is an abnormal rhythm of the heart beat and sometimes becomes so erratic that the heart becomes thickened and tired resulting in it to stop. The stopping is sometimes a good thing and the sino-atrial node automatically kick-starts the heart back into a normal rhythm but in some cases the heart just never restarts.
An ex-girlfriend suffered from this and would occasionally have episodes that were considerably worrying to an 'outsider'.
My thoughts go out to this Taiwanese girl's family and it is indeed such a waste of a young life. A very saddening incident.
