Falling Down: Vladimir Marin faints during a football match

Last night’s Copa Libertadores match between San Lorenzo and Libertad was interrupted by an extremely scarey situation after the Paraguayans midfielder Vladimir Marin fainted midway through the second half.

After hitting the deck following what appeared to be an innoculus challenge, the paramedics quickly ran on the pitch to supply oxygen and medical care as Marin was stretchered off the pitch and into an ambulance as the match was held up for several worrying minutes.

According to reports, Marin soon regained consciousness and amazingly did not require hospital treatment.

The incident can be seen here.
