The emotional collapse and return of Fabrice Muamba at White Hart Lane
17th March 2012 while playing for Bolton against Tottenham Hotspur in an FA Cup quarter final tie, 24-year-old Bolton player Fabrice Muamba got a heavy heart attack. The midfielder collapsed just before halftime, and doctors struggled to revive him on the pitch.

Eventually, the doctors got Muamba onto a stretcher and took him to the hospital where they were thankfully able to revive him from a heart attack, in which his heart stopped beating for 78 minutes.

The moments on the pitch during Muamba’s collapse were terrifying for family, players and fans. Even though Muamba was a player from the opposing team, every fan was hoping that Muamba would be alright.

      Thanks for sharing Laurens. The Fabrice Muamba story is really shocking. Glad to be alive, but no more pro soccer as from age 24-years old..
