Being a ref is dangerous, especially when you have to deal with the scorn of slighted players and their fans — we just didn't think it was THIS dangerous!

A soccer ref from Utah named Ricardo Portillo has died after sustaining injuries from being punched in the face by a player. He had just issued the player a yellow card and was writing it down in his notebook when he was hit right in the face.

Immediately Ricardo sat down, started vomiting blood, and was taken to the hospital. That's where his condition worsened and he eventually passed away from the injury.
