What killed former Red Wings enforcer Bob Probert while he was boating on Lake St. Clair on a hot, steamy afternoon Monday?
That remained a mystery Monday evening.
Probert’s father-in-law, Dan Parkinson, and a family friend, Rich Rogow, held a brief news conference at Windsor Regional Hospital.
They said Probert, who turned 45 last month, suffered severe chest pains about 2 p.m. while boating with his wife, children and in-laws. Parkinson, a police officer, performed CPR on Probert. Emergency medical workers reached the scene and transported Probert to the hospital, where he could not be revived.
“Bob lost the fight of his life this afternoon,” Parkinson said. “This is a tragedy for the family. We ask that you respect their privacy at this time.”
No funeral arrangements were released. Probert, a Windsor native, is survived by his wife and four children.
Bob Probert was born on June 5th, 1965 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Probert
