Concussion #2 can be fatal
95 percent of Second Impact Syndrome (SIS) occurrences happen to kids who are 18 and under. This is because their brains are still developing. SIS is a rare, but often fatal medical emergency. It occurs when a child sustains another concussion while their previous brain injury has not yet properly healed. To protect your athlete from SIS, you must get an annual comprehensive baseline concussion test. This information will tell your doctor if your child has returned to their baseline brain activity levels after experiencing a concussion. Source: American Academy of Pediatrics
