Fernando Torres Suffers Scary Head Injury, Players on Pitch Freak Out (Video)
Scary stuff in La Liga earlier today as Atletico Madrid forward Fernando Torres took a blow to the head from a Deportivo La Coruna player that sent his unconscious body crashing hard to the ground and left the players on the pitch frantically panicking.
After realizing Torres was unconscious and in serious trouble, players from both teams quickly rushed to his aid—with a few of them appearing as though they were trying to retrieve his tongue before he choked on it.
It’s a pretty frightening scene, as indicated by the reactions of several of the players. Watch at your own discretion:
Torres was rushed to the hospital, with the latest reports from the Atletico Twitter account claiming he is conscious and in stable condition:
Thanks for the messages of support for @Torres. He’s stable and conscious. He’ll spend the night in hospital and undergo more tests tomorrow
