‘Wipeout’ Contestant Died From Heart Attack, After Completing Course

The autopsy report, obtained by TMZ, notes Paredes was running an obstacle course built over a body of water when he fell down into the depths. He swam to the edge of the water but was unable to pull himself out, and when he was eventually pulled out he was placed in a wheelchair.

The contestant died about 24 hours after being hospitalized. The autopsy reveals extensive blockage in his coronary arteries. The right coronary artery had up to 90% stenosis — narrowing or restriction — and the other coronary arteries had issues as well. An acute case of pneumonia is also mentioned as a secondary factor.
