Player booked for diving had suffered heart attack

Wed May 05 10:44AM

A Croatian footballer booked for diving had actually dropped dead of a heart attack.

Goran Tunjic, a 32-year-old defender playing for the Mladost FC, collapsed in the 35th minute of the County League match against Hrvatski Sokola, prompting the referee to approach the player with yellow card in his hand.

Tragically, however, the player had suffered a fatal heart attack.

The official quickly realised what had happened and called for medical aid, but Tunjic died despite being rushed to a nearby hospital.

"Doctors tried to help him but there was nothing they could do," a club spokesman said of the player, who had no previous medical problems.

"He just fell dead on the spot."

They carried him off on a stretcher and then two minutes later he ran back onto the field.

so many players cry wolf, it's kinda understandable that he assumed he wasn't actually hurt...not that it's still not sad, but at least a little understandable
