Another professional soccer player collapsed on the field on Monday night. 28-year-old Emil Palsson from Iceland collapsed on the field during the 12th minute of play. 84% of people 16-29 in Iceland are fully vaccinated.
Over the weekend soccer star Sergio Aquero was taken to the hospital after experiencing chest discomfort during a match – six weeks after promoting the vax.
This seems to be happening a lot.
Gee, what do all of these cases have in common?
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.
