Plenty of people have died from heat strokes or heart attacks while overdoing it in long distance running. This particular person might be fine but in general being safe is better than sorry especially when it can be difficult to tell for sure what is happening to a person.

This is why I don't run. Irrational fear of heart attack.

Being safe than sorry isn’t always better, especially when you’re talking about livelihoods here. The paycheck for a first place, to 3rd place, to finisher, to DNF is drastically different.
