LAST 20.15: « Emil Pálsson had a cardiac arrest in the 12th minute of play. Pálsson was successfully revived, and then flown to Haukeland Hospital for further investigation and treatment “, Sogndal writes in a press release .
The 28-year-old will undergo a number of examinations on Monday night.
– It can take time, and therefore there will most likely not be any new status from the club tonight, says Sogndal’s event manager Geir Inge Heggestad to Dagbladet.
Pálsson collapsed on the field after barely a quarter of an hour of the first division match against Stjørdals-Blink, and life-saving first aid was carried out on the field.
The spectators were asked to pull out into the hallways of the stadium while ambulance personnel worked to give the player treatment.
(anytime 2019 or before, I suspect a pro player who had a heart attack on the field in pretty much any sport would be front page news, with demands for new rules and better protective equipment or a ban on the sport altogether. But now, at the risk of sounding insensitive, and we aren’t we wish a full recovery and long life for this professional athlete, if off track bookies are taking bets about who would collapse on the field next with chest pains, knowing exactly when and with what and how many times a player had taken the mRNA shots would be considered if not insider trading, fixing the game.)
