Jay Evans — a spokesperson with the Houston Fire Department, which handled the dispatch — tells CultureMap that paramedics were called to assist a cyclist who collapsed at the Braeswood Bridge on Stella Link. Evans says that the death was not the result of a collision, but rather from a cardiac-related medical incident.
