“wanted to do well”
Last December, it emerged that Rod Stewart’s youngest son Aiden was rushed to hospital, after the youngster collapsed with playing in a recent football match.
Despite being initially reported that Aiden had suffered a heart attack, it subsequently emerged that the 11 year old had endured a bad panic attack.
Aiden was playing for the Young Hoops under 12 side when the incident happened.
“We thought my boy had a heart attack”, Stewart said at the time. “He was going blue and was unconscious until he calmed down. It was scary, but it turned out to be a panic attack. The lad wanted to do well, pulled on the Hoops in Scotland for his dad”.
“Another boy fell backwards and banged his head – he’s still not back. In all of my days watching football, that’s the only time two ambulances had been called”.
