Women trying to provide emergency treatment to a person who collapsed in a sumo ring were urged to leave it during a sumo event. The Japan Sumo Association later said the appeal was inappropriate in the life-threatening situation.

According to the association, Maizuru City Mayor Ryozo Tatami suddenly collapsed while making a speech in the ring on Wednesday. The association was holding the event at a gym in Kyoto Prefecture.
