Watch This Soccor Player Come To The Rescue of a Rival After a Near Fatal Injury [VIDEO]
How frightening is must of been for fans and players to see Oleh Husyev of the Dynamo Kiev take a knee to the face and go down like a sack of potatoes. Quickly midfielder Jaba Kankava noticed that his tongue was apparently blocking his airway, leaving him struggling to breath. Watch him jump into action.
The Huffington Post tells us:
Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk midfielder Jaba Kankava didn’t rush after the ball with most of the rest of the players; instead he raced to his unconscious rival’s side. Kankava flipped Husyev over and frantically began sticking his fingers into Husyev’s mouth. Husyev’s tongue was apparently blocking his airway, leaving him unable to breath.
We often say in the radio business that even though we compete against each other, we’re still doing a business we love and we need to feed our families. It’s great to see these competitors come together for a very important cause…to save someone’s life.
