Medics had to conduct cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The footballer was carried out of the pitch on a stretcher. The match was suspended.
Captain and hero: Simon Kjaer.— Angelo Mangiante (@angelomangiante) June 12, 2021
Before the medics got there he secured his neck, cleared the airways and started CPR. Could have saved #Eriksen’s life. Act of heroism.
Kjaer trying to keep also Cristian’s wife strong, is very emotional.
What a man. 💪
So proud of you 🙏♥️ pic.twitter.com/eOFOMksODe
