Christian Eriksen: Doctor Explains Medical Emergency (Video)



Christian Eriksen Collapse at Euros – Doctor Explains Medical Emergency

The Denmark team doctor has described the moments the medical team brought Christian Eriksen back to life after he collapsed on the pitch during his team’s clash with Finland.

Eriksen went down 40 minutes into the game and received treatment on the pitch from stadium and team medics.

The 29-year-old left the stadium conscious and spoke to team doctor Morten Boesen before being taken to hospital for further treatment and observation.

“We were called on the pitch when Christian fell over,” Dr Boesen said afterwards.

“I did not get to see it, but it soon became clear that he had fallen over. When we got there, he was lying on his side and was breathing.

“We felt the pulse, but pretty quickly the picture changed, and then we started life-saving heart treatment.

“There was fantastic help from the stadium doctor and the rest of the emergency services, and with that collaboration we got what we needed.

“We got Christian back, who spoke to me before he was taken to the hospital.”

The game eventually resumed several hours later, Finland winning 1-0, but the result was somewhat immaterial in the circumstances..

Instead, the players and coaches were relieved when a statement on Sunday morning confirmed that Eriksen was “stable” but would remain in hospital for the time being.

“This morning we have spoken to Christian Eriksen, who has sent his greetings to his teammates,” a statement by the Danish FA said.

“His condition is stable, and he continues to be hospitalised for further examination.

“The team and staff of the national team has received crisis assistance and will continue to be there for each other after yesterday’s incident.

“We would like to thank everyone for the heartfelt greetings to Christian Eriksen from fans, players, the Royal Families from both Denmark and England, international associations, clubs etc.

“We encourage everyone to send their greetings to the Danish FA, where we will make sure they are all passed on to Christian and his family.”
