Soccer Player Given Yellow Card For Dying

yellow cardWhen it comes to officiating in the sport of soccer, it appears as though diving will be tolerated.  Dying, on the other hand, will not.

Mladost FC’s Goran Tunjic found that out the hard way when he collapsed in the 35th minute of a match against Hrvatski Sokol.  The Croatian footballer fell to the ground untouched, causing the official to issue a yellow card for simulation before realizing that the situation was much more serious than he had initially thought.

The medical team was called out onto the field.  Unfortunately, by that time it was too late.  Tunjic was pronounced dead.
