SHOCKING VIDEO: Indonesian goalkeeper dies after collision with team-mate on live match

A goalkeeper in Indonesia’s top division has died after colliding with a team-mate during a league match. Choirul Huda, 38, was rushed to hospital on Sunday but pronounced dead shortly after arriving, doctors said.

In a statement released on the website of his club – Persela FC – Dr Yudistiro Andri Nugroho said Huda suffered “impacts on the chest and lower jaws”.

He added the “initial analysis” suggested a “possibility of head trauma and neck trauma”.

Dr Nugroho, from Dr Soegiri Lamongan hospital in Lamongan, East Java, said the collision resulted in Huda “stopping breathing and [caused a] cardiac arrest”.

He said a medical team attempted to revive him but after an hour there were “no reflexes of signs of normal life”.

The match continued, with Persela beating Semen Padang 2-0. Persela said thousands of fans later attended a candlelit vigil to honour the goalkeeper, who made more than 500 league appearances for his only club.
