Wrestler Eric Denis has died after suffering a suspected
heart attack while competing.

The 40-year-old father of six was taking part in a charity
fight in Montreal, Canada when he collapsed.

First aiders reportedly attempted to resuscitate Denis, but
he was pronounced dead upon his arrival at hospital.

He had been involved in wrestling for more than 20 years.

The fight, organised by the ICW fighting federation was to
raise money for sufferers of Crohns disease.

Danny Kidman, coordinator of the ICW wrestling, described
his death as terrible, Canadian news outlet TVA Nouvelles
reports.

Mr Kidman said Denis was extremely talented and a super
father.

He added: Despite the alarming and tragic situation, the
whole situation was under control.

We were extremely fortunate to have qualified staff for a
situation like that.

Wrestlers will lead tributes to Denis on Saturday night at
another ICW fight gala.
