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)!
