Hungarian Footballer, Miklos Ferer, Dies of Heart Attack on the Field


Reuters reports:

LISBON (Reuters) - Benfica's Hungarian international Miklos Feher died Sunday after collapsing from a heart attack just before the end of a league game with Vitoria Guimaraes, a hospital spokesman said.

The 24-year-old striker was taken to a nearby hospital from the stadium in Guimaraes after falling to the ground in injury time.

Medical personnel struggled to save him for about 90 minutes "until about 11:10 p.m., without success, the player having died," the spokesman told private radio station TSF.

Where are Peterjon and Simon Evans when we need them for perspective. I'm not a soccer/football follower, so I have no context on this.

What is there to say Rick? Terrible news.

I met Feher a few times. He was considered one of the bright young hopes when he played for Gyor and I remember covering his transfer to Porto.

He had done well to win a contract with Benfica and I last saw him play in the Champions League game against Lazio in Italy. He was also the national team's main striker.

Very sad.

We were shown the Last Breath video in our college sermon.All of the students in the hall were close to crying when we watched this footballer drop dead. The song complementing it was also very thought provoking.If anybody wants to watch or download it,just type Last Breath in google.
