I had the White Sox game on in the background and saw this. It was very strange the way they didn't cut to commerical or anything, they stuck with a shot of the guy getting worked on. If you're the producer, you have to know there's a decent chance this guy is dying, what the hell are you sticking with the shot for. And then they're driving him off in the cart and the guy's just kind of walking along side half-assedly giving chest compressions.
Male fan does not belong in the HOF.
Back in the 1950s, NFL commissioner Bert Bell saw a game on TV with the camera lingering on a closeup of an injured player, obviously writhing in agony on the ground. The next morning he called up the networks and said, "You show something like that again, where some player's wife tuning in has to watch her husband in pain, I'm revoking your contracts." (A few years later Bell died of a heart attack at an Eagles/Steelers game in Philadelphia, and the wire service photos showed him being led out of Franklin Field, one of his limp limbs dangling off of the stretcher.)
