Soccer Player Fabrice Muamba Remains Critically Ill

Fabrice Muamba

Terrible news.

Soccer player Fabrice Muamba remains critically ill two days after suffering a cardiac arrest during an FA Cup match at Tottenham.

His heart basically stopped, only to start beating on it's own again when arriving at the hospital.

The next match has been postponed for now.

The league does do annual screening for heart conditions:

"While we have been able to pick up quite a number (of heart defects) and then been able to put them right, it is not always possible. This sometimes happens to young men and women who would be the last people you would think about having such a defect, and then suddenly it is found out."

Because of this, nearly everyone wants to get screened right away.

We hope he gets better — this is extremely scary.
