Sophie Raworth Illness
Sophie Raworth had a health scare after she collapsed at the London Marathon in 2012.
She said: “I was absolutely fine until about 17 miles. But I hadn’t drunk enough. Suddenly my skin was getting goosebumps – this is odd, I thought, I’m really hot, but I’m cold.”
The BBC newsreader collided with a barrier and instead of stepping aside, she continued to run on the course.
She added: “I came through the underpass up out onto The Embankment and swerved smack into a barrier. Somebody said, ‘Go on Raworth! You can do it!’ So I bounced back on to the course. And the next thing I knew, I woke up on a stretcher, surrounded by people, with an oxygen mask on. I didn’t know what was going on.
“I collapsed with heat exhaustion after 23 miles. It was very hot and I hadn’t drunk enough water. For 20 minutes I was unconscious and when I came round I thought I was dying.
“It was the most frightening experience of my life, but the St John Ambulance staff got my temperature down from 106F by covering me in ice packs and pouring water over me.
“For two hours they looked after me, providing lots of reassurance and sugared tea. They wanted to put me on the bus but I wasn’t having that so I jogged to the finish, where I met my family, who’d been worried sick. As the hours passed they’d had no idea what had happened to me.”
