Hospital officials in Italy have said a footballer who collapsed on the pitch today has died after a cardiac arrest.

The Livorno midfielder Piermario Morosini was playing against Pescara in a Serie B game when he fell to the ground.

Witnesses have said Morosini, 25, tried to get back up but then collapsed again.

A doctor told Italian media: "He suffered a cardiac arrest. Unfortunately he was already dead when the ambulance arrived. He never regained consciousness."

There have been reports that a police car had blocked the ambulance's way into the stadium, delaying the arrival of paramedics and specialist equipment.

The match was abandoned after 31 minutes with other players in tears.

And the Italian federation has called off all league games for the rest of the weekend.

Morosini was capped as an under-21 player and on loan to Livorno from Serie A side Udinese.

The incident comes just weeks after Bolton Wanderers' player Fabrice Muamba collapsed on the field in a live televised game against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.

RIP Morosini.

Very sad and a wierd coincidence this happening so soon after Muamba. I'd never heard of this happening in football before these incidents.

Surely this has to highlight the fact that all players pre contract medicals should be more stringentand not just at "injuries" but the whole pysical being. RIP

I think they do... The problem is you cannot predict when someone is going to have a heart attack. It could happen to a broad range of fitness levels. Could happen to anyone!

Such sad news.

OMG.

Did you see the Referee?

He didn't even look, a player behind him was shouting at him but he never turned round and let play carry on.

Terrible.

I think thats very harsh - the vast majority of people who receive CPR sadly don't make it back and they die - as would probably have been the case with Muamba if he wasn't such a high profile incident with such specialist services a few seconds away - probably would have been an entirely different outcome if this had happened outside the premier in this country.

Such a tragic waste of a young life - thoughts with those affected by this - his family and friends

RIP Piermario Morosini

This is so true.

However, I had a cardiac arrest in 2003. If it hadn't been for the quick thinking of my friends giving me CPR & mouth to mouth then I wouldn't be here now.

They kept going for 30 mins until paramedics arrived. Only a difib shock can get your heart going again but if you can keep circulation going until the shock arrives then you have half a chance.

My point is that you dont have to wait for a ref to stop a stupid football match to save someones life. If you know what to do just get stuck in an do it, you cant make it any worse.

More education about these things is desparately needed.

By the way, I was in France when it happened to me.



RIP Piermario Morosini

Guys, for any of you on facebook or twitter.

Search for the Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) organisation - a charity pushing for all sportsmen to be screened regularly from the age of 16 upwards and more thorough checks to be carried out.

Please follow/join the group if you have been touched by the media craze and sudden rise in cardiac incidents in football because the legislation they want bringing in is fitting to help protect those vulnerable to heart defects by identifying them early.

No membership is required. Simply by following or joining the group you can follow their progress and add to the numbers of support they desperatley need to make a difference

It has to remembered that football (all football including grass roots football) prevents dozens if not hundreds of cardiac arrests per year.

RIP such sad news.

On a serious note, anyone can save a life in this sort of situation with only basic first aid training. Check out www.redcross.org.uk or download their app.
PM me for local training info, please you never know when you could save someone and it's most likely to be someone you know and love.

RIP to the lad.

Is it me or does this rarely happen in other sports?

In football it seems to becoming more and more often.

It always seems to be footballers, you rarely hear Rugby or hockey players collasping. Do other sports get more in depth health checks and screening?

Again RIP to the lad.

RIP Morosini.

This article chokes me up a bit....



By Telegraph staff
9:18AM BST 16 Apr 2012

Morosini, 25, was on loan at Livorno when he collapsed and died during a clash with Pescara on Saturday.

Udinese has confirmed plans to look after the player's only remaining family member, his severely disabled sister.

The player's sister relied on Morosini for financial support following the death of their parents, and Di Natale has assured that Udinese will now look after her.

"We know the situation of his sister and we as a team, the club, and Udinese for Life have decided to help her because she is in real need," Di Natale said.

"It is essential to stay by the side of Piermario’s sister for her entire life. She needs us and we want to help, both for her and for Mario.
"When I saw the scene on the TV it was immediately clear that it was something serious. It was a very bad moment. He was an exceptional lad, so full of life. Despite all the problems he had, he was always at the disposal of the team and every day he gave us all strength."
The Italian Football Association (FIGC) opted to cancel all Serie A fixtures in the wake of Morosini's tragic death.

It seems in Italy they have more stringent checks and more often - i remember reading fairly recently they were trying to establish a link between motor neuron disease and and football after 3 players fell prey to the disease in a short timeframe

It also illustrates quite graphically that medical science doesn't have all the answers - far from it

That's the first time I've heard the link between motor neurones disease and football, it's certainly made me think as a 29 yo friend of mine died from this last year, he had played football all his life, he was a big powerful centre back.
Sadly he was diagnosed in march last year and died on July 13th, 4 days after marrying his childhood sweetheart, leaving behind 2 young kids, as a twist of fate, the date of his wedding was set 2 years earlier obviously not knowing he would only just make it?
