For those of you reading who are in the UK right you, you may be very familiar with the name Fabrice Muamba. He’s a footballer playing for Bolton
right now. Well, in case you wasn't aware a short while ago now he collapsed on the pitch during a F.A. Cup game against Tottenham. His exact
condition isn’t quite known at this stage but reports are saying that It’s a suspected heart attack, some sources even saying he wasn't breathing
on the pitch while receiving aid, all the while being surrounded by fellow players and team-mates, some of which in tears and others clearly praying
for him at that time. Tragic, he's only 23 years old.
Here’s a snippet from one of many news articles out there on this story:
Tottenham's FA Cup game against Bolton Wanderers has been abandoned after Trotters midfielder Fabrice Muamba collapsed and stopped breathing.
Medics spent 10 minutes trying to resuscitate the 23-year-old on the field before the players were taken off by referee Howard Webb.
BBC Radio 5 live senior football reporter Ian Dennis says the English midfielder is fighting for his life.
The score was 1-1 when he collapsed with no players close-by on 41 minutes.
Medical staff gave Muamba mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and tried to revive him with a defibrillator. In total six medics were treating the
This is a very shocking story which happened only in the last hour I believe, particularly for football fans here in the UK like me. Fabrice is an
extremely talented young man and from the looks of it, his current condition isn't looking too great right now to say the least, this made even sadder
by the fact he's not even 24 years years old - A very young life that is potentially over here.
He plays for Bolton right now but he started out his career at the very team I support as well so I'm fairly familiar with him already. Such a sad
story and something no football fan ever wants to see. And something that shouldn't ever happen to such a young man.
