NFL Hall of Fame QB collapses

Bart Starr, 78, collapsed while giving a speech

Wisconsin State Journal

Bart Starr collapsed Tuesday morning after giving a speech at Monona Terrace Convention Center, but the legendary Green Bay Packers quarterback recovered almost immediately, a Monona Terrace official said.

Starr, 78, was speaking at the Governor's Conference on Economic Development, put on by the Wisconsin Economic Development Association.

Fran Puleo, public relations manager at Monona Terrace, said Starr had just finished his speech and was getting ready to take questions when he collapsed at the podium. "He came to right away," Puleo said. "911 was called and the emergency responders were there right away as well."
