22-year old, Kirk Urso, Columbus Crew midfielder died unexpectedly after being found unconscious Saturday night at 533 Park Street. The player was transported to Grant Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
Urso was in his first season with the crew this past year and missed quite a few games while recovering from a groin injury in May. His cause of death is still unknown and many details are not being disclosed in order to protect the privacy of the Urso family. However, an autopsy is scheduled for this afternoon.
Thoughts and prayers go out to the Urso family and the Columbus Crew for the loss of such a valuable person and team member.
