Ukrainian Soccer Player Saves An Opposing Player's Life After Terrifying Takedown! Watch The INCREDIBLE Video Here!

| Filed under: ZportzInspirationHealthSoccer

This is insane!

The captain of the Ukrainian soccer team Dynamo Kiev, Oleg Gusev, got a knee to the head DURING a game — and passed out.

That's when Oleg began to have a seizure and nearly died from swallowing his tongue!

Luckily midfielder Jaba Kankava from Dnipro, the opposing team, saw Oleg and forced his fingers down his throat to keep him alive and his airways clear!

We know what you're thinking: yes he DID get bitten!

According to Dynamo’s team doc, the injuries to Gusev were minimal. Just a bruised jaw and a ‘medium’ concussion.


You can see the whole scary moment (above)!

    You can't swallow your tongue.

    You should take this thread down. The belief that you should put something in the mouth of a seizing patient is incorrect. You cannot swallow your own tongue and it is very dangerous to put anything in the mouth of someone who is having a seizure. I'm a doctor.

    As the mother of a child with Epilepsy, I find the misinformation here unfortunate. You cannot swallow your tongue while having a seizure! This misinformation is why there is still prejudice towards people with Epilepsy. Perhaps he had something in his mouth he choked on while seizing but NOT his tongue.

    I had mild epilepsy when I was a child and a teen, fortunately outgrew it, back then it was a bit of a stigma. In those days a long time ago, it was recommended to stick a spoon in the person's mouth. Now apparently this is not recommended.

    good intentions, but NEVER put anything in the mouth of someone having a seizure. Protect their head and make sure there's nothing in the area that can injure them if they hit it. Also, time the seizure so health care professionals can know how long the patient may have been without oxygen.

    You need to edit this to explain that his actions were a mistake! I work in an Autism center it is extremely dangerous for both parties to place your hands or even a finger in someone's mouth. There is no reason for it!

    There are a lot of people there who need Epilepsy First Aid training!!
    Roll the person on to their side to keep airways open
    Place something soft under the head for protection
    Do not restrain, Do NOT put anything in the mouth.
    Stay calm and give him space to breathe!
