Player booked for diving had suffered heart attack


Recommended Posts

OMG :anguish:

A Croatian footballer booked for diving had actually dropped dead of a heart attack.

Goran Tunjic, a 32-year-old defender playing for the Mladost FC, collapsed in the 35th minute of the County League match against Hrvatski Sokola, prompting the referee to approach the player with yellow card in his hand.

Tragically, however, the player had suffered a fatal heart attack.

The official quickly realised what had happened and called for medical aid, but Tunjic died despite being rushed to a nearby hospital.

"Doctors tried to help him but there was nothing they could do," a club spokesman said of the player, who had no previous medical problems.

"He just fell dead on the spot."

this happens far too often...in Scotland the players get extra heart checks now...a mate in cardiology saw some gers players up getting the checks Lafferty, Miller, Velicka...think they go up in small groups at a time

Some heart conditions can't be caught early, it's just one of those things that you don't find out about until it's too late.

Conditions like Myocarditis for instance can lay dormant with no signs, then cause major heart failure.

I read that in our newspaper yesterday and felt real sorry for all concerned.If the player in question had been McGready and I was the Referee, I would have shown the cheating wee crunt a Red card for time wasting and not getting up when I told him... and then got the first aid guys to cart him off on the stretcher and dump him on the sideline.:redcard:
