Another sportsman died

Féher died.

The hungarian player Miklos Féher died, this Sunday, in Guimarães Hospital, after falling on the ground inanimated at the end of the Vitória de Guimarães - Benfica game. The player was given as dead at 23:15. The "red" club confirmed the death of the player to TSF.

The hungarian player entered at the minute 60 of the game, collapsed and after 15 minutes of reanimation, he was sent to the hospital.

Miklos Féher was 24 years old.

From what I've been told, he died of stroke in the head and lungs... Sad way to die...

This makes the second player that dies in the middle of a game in less that 2 years over here in Portugal

Edit (The news given by CNN):

GUIMARAES, Portugal (AP) -- Hungarian international Miklos Feher died Sunday at a hospital after collapsing on the field during a Portuguese league match.

The 24-year-old Benfica striker, who came on as a substitute 15 minutes into the second half, was given CPR on the field before being taken to Guimaraes hospital in an ambulance.

An autopsy is schedule for Monday, according to news reports.

Feher had just been shown a yellow card in injury time and smiled at the referee before leaning forward with his hands on his thighs and then suddenly falling backward.

Medical staff from both teams ran onto the field and were joined by local emergency crews. He appeared unconscious when they reached him.

The match was played in heavy rain on a muddy field. Benfica won 1-0.

The Hungarian striker first came to Portugal in 1998 when he signed with FC Porto. He moved to Benfica in 2002.


Feher has rarely started for the Red Devils in the 19 league games so far this season.

Last year, Cameroon star Marc-Vivien Foe collapsed at the Confederations Cup and later died. He was found to have had a heart attack caused by an enlarged left ventricle.

Here in Norway, on the 17th of January this year, a regular 14 year old girl died while playing football. She was having trouble breathing, so she went off the field. When she sat on the bench, she collapsed and died, just like that. A nurse (and a doctor too, if I'm not mistaken) was there and tried to resuscitate her, but in vain. Some suspect a chronic heart condition, though she had been examined some time before due to trouble breathing, but the doctors hadn't found anything wrong with her heart or lungs. Her parents now wants to start a trust fund in hopes of helping to prevent something like this from happening again.

Life can be so damn unfair at times....

According to the Portuguese online newspaper "O Publico", he fell right immediately after smirking at the referee because he was given a yellow card. His team mates surrounded him in dispair. Also at the same time the medical team came in to assist Feher, and they atempted to reanimate him for 15 minutes, which after they called in the ambulance that took him to the hospital. Some players and even the Benfica coach couldn't hold their tears, some team mates were praying. When the player was moved out of the field and ambulance, the assisting public for both teams applauded with a standing ovation. The autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow(Monday).

Well, from what I heard it was a heart-attack, some blood clot or something. To go that way at such an age, its sad. For it to just happen as it did, kinda of odd IMO. You'd think he'd feel bad during the game. But to just happen out of the blue...

Even though I know nothing about him or soccer, that's sad. Can't imagine how much that must suck for his family watching the game.

I don't think i've ever heard of anything like that happening at the professional level in U.S pro sports (I don't count pro-wrasseling). There have been deaths during practice or outside the game, but never on the field in front of thousands of fans that I know of. Unless it was a fastball to the head, I guess that may of happened before but I just never heard about it before.

Ray Chapman, Cleveland Indians, August 16, 1920 - struck in the head by a Carl Mays (Yankees) pitch and died the next day in his hospital bed. Only player ever to die in MLB.

Auto racing is very risky and claimed quite a few lives. Dale Earnhardt, a stock car driver, is a recent and notable example.

As far as testing for heart conditions, the extensive testing required to reveal lesser structural weaknesses is very costly and not required as part of medical examinations for amateur and pro sports in the US.

It should be required! Those bastards make billions, they should be able to afford proper examinations for their players. No amount of money is too much over someone's life.

There are several exceptions I wish to take with this. First of all, professional sports teams in the US are very very solicitous of their players' health. Players have quite a bit of say about things like returning from injuries. Teams provide for and require very high levels of conditioning.

"Proper" examinations are part of sports on many levels in the US. High school athletes, for example, must be examined just prior to the school year in which they will compete. A certain amount of heart and other cardiovascular testing is part of these examinations.

The players themselves are earning a lot of money and have to be accountable to some extent for their own well-being. It is a well-known fact that an NFL career will likely take several years off one's life; someone pursuing that career is making a choice. Also the use of drugs like ephedra increases the risk of heart trouble, and players must accept responsibility for their own drug abuse.

Perhaps as tests such as MRI become less expensive they will be added to existing testing requirements; however, they are relatively new and I have heard of only one fatality which would have been prevented through application of such a test.

Damn my luck...when i heard it was on i ran upstairs only to get there too late ...

does anyone know where i can see the vid online? stream, d/l....it doesn't matter...as long as i'm able to see it...i had found it on a portuguese site...but i wasn't able to play it

Edit: I finally got to see it, luckily the Portuguese news broadcast made most of the show dedicated to him, so they aired the video many times over...when i saw it i was shocked...as everyone basically said...words can't even describe it....
