Soccer Player Collapses


Recommended Posts

Just watching the Euro 2020 competition.  One of the stars for Denmark, Christian Eriksen collapsed and I think died on the field.  They did chest compressions and at one point defibrillation.  Very, very scary.  I felt sick watching the medical team attempt to revive him.  Off the field now so we should get an update soon.

Not 100% positive but I think he's awake and responsive.  Definitely too early to speculate he died.  Scary regardless.

They finally carted him off to applause so I think you're correct that he might be alive.  But at one point, you can see the players frantic and crying.  He was not moving with his eyes wide open on the ground.  He looked dead.  They started wild chest compressions and I saw his body jump from defibrillation.

No thanks don't like seeing stuff like this. 

Death,blood and guts not my thing. 

Me either.  Just seemed important to report.  Took me back to the Dennis Byrd game.

Shot of Eriksen as he was taken off the field.  He was alert at this point.  Now at the hospital awaiting further testing.  I'm just thrilled that awesome medical team brought him back.  Go light a candle.

That's not true. 

Hopefully the player recovers. The player could've suffered an arrhythmia and chest compressions were started unnecessarily or out of an abundance of caution.

Really horrible to watch. The way he collapsed with no-one near him, I really thought he had gone. When they were doing CPR for so long, it really did not look good at all.

So relieved that the medical team managed to revive him and he is now stable.

Very scary stuff.

Stable and conscious in hospital.

So relieved. When I saw it live, I really thought he had died on the field.

Theyre restarting the game which is crazy. I guess that means he's OK though.

Yeah bystanders will starts compressions on anybody who passes out- can’t blame them trying to do the right thing but often ends up in contusions or some broken ribs

Not until declared dead by an MD.  Until that point, you continue all attempts at reviving the patient.

Like @Jet_Engine1 said, I've seen people start them on alert patients, scary stuff.

Pretty definitive proof that until they revived him, Eriksen was gone.

Denmark team doctor Morten Boesen: "When I get to him he is on his side. He is breathing and I can feel his pulse but suddenly that changes"

Denmark's team doctor Morten Boesen said: "I didn’t see it myself but it was pretty clear that he was unconscious.

"When I get to him he is on his side. He is breathing and I can feel his pulse but suddenly that changes and as everyone saw, we started giving him CPR.

"Help came really, really fast from the medical team and the rest of the staff and with their cooperation we did what we had to do. We managed to get Christian back. He spoke to me before he was taken to the hospital for more analysis."

Good news:

Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta: "Eriksen just sent a message on Inter WhatsApp chat"

Speaking to Rai Sport, Inter Milan's CEO Giuseppe Marotta revealed that Eriksen has sent a message to the club's WhatsApp group.

He said: "Christian Eriksen just sent a message on Inter WhatsApp chat, it was few minutes ago. 

"We’re optimistic about Christian conditions, Denmark staff told us that the situation is under control."

Been a Tottenham Hotspur fan since HS, Eriksen was one of the best to wear the Lilywhite.  Creative, smart and deadly on free kicks. Praying for you Christian.

Larz, I was watching in real time and my heart dropped when Eriksen stumbled and fell.  They did a few closeups where he was motionless on the ground, grey with eyes wide open.  I called my wife and son in to see.  All of us were stunned and sickened.

Suddenly, the medical team starts doing chest compressions and a few minutes later I see Eriksen's body jump from the defibrillation.  That freaked us out.

That’s a world class athlete that happened to, it’s crazy that something like that could happen to him.
One of the rugby players on our team died of a heart attack on the pitch a few years ago during the match. You just never know. Being healthy and in shape doesn’t mean you’re safe.

You mean clinically dead.  If a person is not breathing and they are in cardiac arrest (heart not beating), they are clinically dead.  This is when CPR is supposed to be performed.

A person is not legally dead until a coroner or other health care professional declares a person dead, typically after resuscitation efforts have been performed for some time and failed.
