Sinterklaas collapses at football club party

A Sinterklaas party at a football club in Apeldoorn went wrong on Wednesday afternoon when the man playing St Nicholas collapsed with a heart attack.

The man was rushed to hospital in Zwolle where he remains in a coma, RTL news said.
The children were immediately taken out of the room when Sinterklaas was taken ill and the party continued elsewhere. ‘The drama [of Sint collapsing] was enough for the children to deal with,’ club chairman Ton Peters told local paper De Stentor.
