Soccer Player Suffers Heart Attack, Collapses On Pitch (Video)

Sports are responsible for bringing joy and excitement to the lives of many, but sometimes they provide us with rather frightening moments.  That was the case during a Segunda Division soccer match between Salmanca and Real Betis on Sunday, when Salmanca’s Miguel Garcia suffered a heart attack and suddenly collapsed on the pitch.

Medics rushed to his aid in an attempt to resuscitate the Salmanca midfielder as members of both teams looked on in fear.  After several minutes, Garcia was eventually revived and taken to a nearby hospital where he is said to be recovering “favorably”, and remains in intensive care.  We wish him and his family the best during his recovery.

Here is a look at the scary incident from Sunday.
