The string of football deaths continues with news that 22-year-old Alexandros Lampis, who plays as an attacking midfielder for Ilioupoli FC, collapsed after suffering a sudden cardiac arrest during Wednesday’s match against Ermionida.
The dramatic scene unfolded just 14 minutes into the game at the First Municipal Stadium of Ilioupoli FC when Lampis collapsed to the ground without taking contact from another player. Doctors from both sides rushed onto the field to try and revive him, however, there was no defibrillator available at the stadium and an ambulance was called.
An ambulance arrived after 15 minutes and Lampis was put into the back of the ambulance. Both sides were visibly shaken by the sight and the match was abandoned shortly afterward.
Ilioupoli FC announced his passing not long after the incident:
Lampis’ collapse and cardiac arrest is part of a continuing trend of professional footballers collapsing and dying on the field around the world. This hit a peak in late December, where four different players died within one week from cardiac arrests during their matches.
The increase in footballers suffering sudden cardiac arrests in 2021 and 2022 is raising questions as to whether or not the COVID-19 vaccines are causing this unprecedented rise.Please consider supporting by sharing or making a donation.
