Brothers Die Jogging Days Apart

Both Men Were Marathon Runners

The brother of a man who died after collapsing during a run in a New York City park has died days later, also while jogging.

The Daily News says 60-year-old Peter Berry collapsed and died while running in Central Park on Sunday.

His half-brother, 68-year-old Rynn Berry, went into cardiac arrest during a New Year's Eve run in Prospect Park. He died 10 days later on Jan. 9.

The men's last surviving brother called it "a shock for the family." A memorial service was set for Monday at St. James Church in Manhattan.

Rynn Berry, who had no identification on him, lay comatose and unidentified in a Brooklyn hospital for several days until his half-sibling identified him.

Both men had competed in the New York Marathon.
