Danish Football Star Eriksen Suffered Cardiac Arrest During EURO Match vs Finland

Ex-Tottenham and Team Denmark star Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest during Saturday’s match against Finland, said Kasper Hjulmand, head coach of the Danish national football team. Eriksen "was gone" before he was resuscitated, said team doctor Morten Boesen. "We got him back after one defib. That’s quite fast".

Hjulmand said he had spoken with a smiling Eriksen via video link and that the midfielder was more concerned about his teammates, asking how they were doing. ''That's typical Christian", the Danish coach said.

Captain and Medics Praised for Swift Response

As mentioned earlier, the incident occurred towards the end of the first half. Eriksen was running towards his teammate, who was making a throw-in, when he suddenly started stumbling and fell forward.

Warning: the following video contains scenes that may be disturbing to some viewers. 

Thousands of fans fell silent in horror, while Eriksen’s teammates gathered around medics attempting to resuscitate him. Experts say the doctors’ swift response as well as captain Simon Kjaer’s decision to clear the athlete’s airways saved him
