NFL Agent Buddy Baker’s Parents Die 6 Minutes Apart From Coronavirus

NFL agent Buddy Baker announced the death of his parents who passed away just six minutes apart from each other.

Baker revealed on Twitter his parents, who were married for over 50 years and had no health issues, contracted the virus and passed away on Sunday. He urged everyone to take social distancing seriously.

“We live in a world of, ‘It can’t happen to me. It can’t happen to us. It can’t happen to my family.’ Well, it happened to us. I’d like to take this time to make people start thinking about making a change. While the CDC and all the regulatory bodies make suggestions about what we should do, I’m not sure everyone understands the importance of it.”
