I presume the tag is for the doctors who kept him alive.

Wow, that is really amazing. How is this guy not a complete veg?

I'm genuinely curious as to how they got oxygen to his brain during this 78 minutes.

CPR.

I just have a hard time imagining that would be sufficient.

Oh well, back to Boy Scouts for me?

Theoretically, if it is done right, it keeps the blood flowing. That is its job. If someone is doing rescue breathing to keep oxygen in the lungs, it should work.

He will now be in high demand with every soccer team on the planet, as he has a proven record of one of the best dives on the field.

Yeah, "Spiffy" I can see, even "Cool". Temporarily dying of a heart attack and then being revived by medical professionals does not a hero make.

Unless you do it while scoring a game winner in extra time. Or you're also a firefighter.

There have been advances in the field of medicine on that. I remember reading something on FARK about that.

This part from another article brought forth a bit of the dust in the room: "Two hours after (regaining consciousness) I whispered in his ear, 'What's your name?' and he said, 'Fabrice Muamba.' I said, 'I hear you're a really good footballer' and he said, 'I try.' I had a tear in my eye."
 
2012-04-16 04:56:15 PM
Will he ever play pro again?
 
2012-04-16 05:08:12 PM
You people are so jaded. Can't you just for one moment look at the world with wide-eyed uncynical wonder like I can?

It's like "Wake me up when heart stopages are measured in decades. MY heart stopped for the 80s and 90s and I barely batted an eyelash."

I'd be willing to support a hero tag if he tells the government to drop the case about the people who posted racist tweets about him.

foo monkey: Will he ever play pro again?


Even if he's able to, would any doctor clear him to play- consdiering he apparently has some serious heart problems, and soccer is one of the most intense games out there.
 
2012-04-16 06:13:23 PM
Hero tag earned by the doctor who came down to the field from the stands to assist and provide on-site treatment.
 
2012-04-16 06:33:47 PM
This after Morosini was carried into the morgue. Fate is the Hunter.
 
2012-04-16 06:33:52 PM
took him a month to recover?

soccer players are pussies.

I am not familiar with the tweets but why should he let bottom dwellers off the hook?

This is cool. Happy for his family.
 
2012-04-16 06:46:43 PM
I know soccer is boring as shiat, but having guys code on the field is a bad way to spice things up.

Rules committee needs to come up with something else. Maybe some tigers on the pitch or bear-trap or two.

I don't know why, but limeys not putting 'the' in front of 'hospital' has always bothered me more than it should. That, and 'crisps'.

swahnhennessy: 'the'


Then there's California, putting 'the' in front of every freeway number when describing traffic or directions..

"Take the 405 to the 5 and then eventually get on the 101 until you reach the 10..."

(editor's note: those are not actual directions, so I have no idea if any of those actually intersect)
 
2012-04-16 06:58:52 PM
So.......red card for his flop?
 
2012-04-16 07:00:57 PM
According to the side bar in this (new window), he's had a pacemaker fitted

That is a southern California thing, not a statewide phenomena. We certainly had none of that shiat going on during my 20 years in the Bay Area. I remember watching footage of the Northgate quake and wondering why they kept saying "the 5".

As for this man, well, I think that's fabrulous news.

1) This isn't in the UK so our constitution has no bearing over there
2) I'm fairly certain he doesn't know anything about it and it isn't really on his mind since he's, you know, trying to rebuild his life after being dead for over an hour.
3) The fact that this is the thing you focus on out of the whole story says a lot about you.

1. Right is right. Just because the First Amendment doesn't apply doesn't mean free speech isn't a good thing that should be protected worldwide
2. When he finds out he should
3. I don't particularly care about soccer. I have no clue who he is, nor did I know about his accident until I read about the guy being sent to prison for the tweet. People die every day. It can't be helped and will never stop. What we can stop is putting people in jail for typing something online.

Great news all around. Amazing work by the docs.

There is absolutely nothing heroic about playing soccer. Nothing.

day.

A little respect for Piermario Morosini who sadly didn't have the same good fate as Muamba.

RIP

Yeah, damn allergies in the room.

Muamba is a humble footballer and well-respected. Great to see him walk out of there.

Sadly, this. The fact that some dick cop car stood in the way of the ambulance that could've saved this guy's life gets me pissed.

Motherfarker has dedication, stopping his heart for so long in order to keep from getting the yellow card.

I can think of one ref that still would have given him the card had he been on the pitch...
 
2012-04-17 07:11:56 AM
Awesome, hope he can get back and track and wonder if he can still see City's title chances or Chelsea finally winning the Champions League.
 
2012-04-17 07:44:16 AM
What caused his cardiac arrest anyway? I'm honestly curious because, the article never mentions anything about what could have caused it and several articles I have read never touch on the cause either.

Do soccer players use EPO like cyclists do?
