Did Olympic Coach David Jenkins Die From Vaccine SADS?!


Truth : David Jenkins Died From SADS, Not Vaccine!

It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all athlete deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : David Jenkins Was Found Unconscious Underwater

David Jenkins, who was Tom Daley’s Olympic diving coach, went for a swim before dinner at a hotel in the Turkish city of Antalya on Saturday, October 9, 2021.

He had spent the day training the Great Britain diving squad, following their success at the summer Olympics.

At 7:20 PM, the National Performance Director for British Diving (at that time), Alexei Evangulov, was about to sit down for dinner, when a hotel staff member asked for him, “Please come with me, one of your team members is in the pool and he doesn’t go out.

The staff member explained that Jenkins was “doing exercises in the water and then died underwater“. When Evangulov arrived at the pool, he saw Jenkins “lying at the bottom… face up, and had his goggles on“.

He called for an ambulance, and pulled David Jenkins out of the pool with the help of a swimming coach from Denmark.

David Jenkins was taken to a hospital where doctors attempted to resuscitate him, and his heart came “in and out” for just under an hour. Unfortunately, he was pronounced dead at around 9 PM.

Fact #2 : David Jenkins Often Holds Breath Underwater

The UK inquest into his death was told that David Jenkins was a fan of exercises in which he would hold his breath underwater for long periods of time, in line with the Wim Hof Method.

The Wim Hof Method is named after the Dutch extreme athlete who holds his breath underwater in freezing temperatures, and uses the Tibetan Tummo meditation to increase the time by which the practitioner can hold his/her breath underwater.

This may or may not have been a factor in his death, but it would certainly explain why he was found at the bottom of the pool.

Fact #3 : Autopsy Confirmed David Jenkin’s Cause of Death

An autopsy of David Jenkins with a toxicology test were conducted not only in Turkey, but also in the United Kingdom by Dr. Deirdre McKenna. The toxicology results showed that he had not been drinking, and he did not consume recreational drugs before he died.

While the autopsies showed nothing unusual, an inquest at North London Coroners Court concluded that David Jenkins died from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS), also known as Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome,

Assistant Coroner for North London Peter Straker explained how it can strike young, healthy people, and that they suffer an arrhythmia before the heart stops.

There have been some high-profile cases including famously, the footballer Christian Eriksen, whose heart stopped while he was on a football field.

He had advanced life support available almost instantly. You can imagine what the result would have been if he was in a pool, if that is of any use.

The coroner concluded that David Jenkins died of natural causes, specifically – adult cardiac death.

Fact #4 : SADS Is An Inherited Heart Condition

It is ludicrous to claim that COVID-19 vaccines cause sudden arrhythmic death syndrome (SADS), because SADS was first documented in 1977 – long before COVID-19 vaccines were invented!

Despite what anti-vaccination activists may tell you – SADS is not a new vaccine-related syndrome.

SADS is an inherited problem with your heart’s electrical system, which produces an abnormal heart rhythm that leads to a cardiac arrest. That’s why it can be prevented by implanting a cardioverter-defribillator.

SADS also occurs at a rate of 0.12 to 0.21 per 100,000 people every single year. In other words, approximately 9,000 to 16,000 people die from SADS every single year, before the COVID-19 vaccines were invented.

The UK Office for National Statistics data on Sudden Adult Deaths from 2016 to 2020 also showed NO INCREASE in SADS cases, demonstrating that COVID-19 vaccines did not increase the prevalence of SADS.

Note : There is no 2021 data until sometime in December 2022. The 2020 data was only released on 22 December 2021.

Vaccination in the United Kingdom started on 8 December 2020, with over a million doses administered by end of the month. Despite (false) claims that the vaccines cause SADS, that did not result in an increase in SADS cases.

Fact #5 : Unknown If David Jenkins Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Anti-vaccination activists claim that David Jenkins was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19. However, there is no evidence of that, as he never publicly revealed his vaccination status.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United Kingdom, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Until and unless we know his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who claims that David Jenkins was killed by the COVID-19 vaccine is lying to you.

Even if David Jenkins was vaccinated, he would likely received the AstraZeneca vaccine, which does not have the small risk of myocarditis in young adult (younger than 25 years old).

Fact #6 : Claims Of Athletes Dying From COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing athlete deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of athlete deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance.

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next athlete tragedy…
