Tuesday 5 News told you that Dylan Jeffries' brain aneurysm was caused by a concussion that happened at a previous game, but we don't know that for sure.
"I find it pretty unlikely that his aneurysm was a result of a previous concussion. It would have had to been a more brain injury in his past. Traumatic brain injuries to the head can predispose someone to the development of an aneurysm, but in younger people we always worry about hereditary concerns," said Tad Seifert, Neurologist.
If you have a brain aneurysm you usually won't know you have it until it ruptures or leaks, which apparently was the case for Dylan Jeffries.
