We Got Christian Back: Denmark Doctor After Eriksen Collapse At Euro 2020
Denmark’s crew physician described the harrowing second he realised Christian Eriksen’s pulse had stopped as medics labored desperately to save lots of him in entrance of traumatised gamers and a shocked crowd on Saturday.
Medics gave the Inter Milan midfielder CPR on the pitch after he collapsed through the Euro 2020 match in opposition to Finland in Copenhagen and he was later mentioned to be “awake” in hospital and his situation had stabilised.
“We were called on the pitch when Christian fell down, I didn’t see myself but it was pretty clear he was unconscious,” physician Martin Boesen informed a post-match media convention.
“When I get to him, he’s on his side. He is breathing and I can see pulse but suddenly that changes, and as everyone saw we started giving him CPR.
“The assist got here actually, actually quick from the medical crew and the remainder of the workers, and with their cooperation we did what we did to do. We managed to get Christan again.”
Denmark coach Kasper Hjulmand heaped praise on his team after they returned to the field to complete the match after many were visibly distraught at Eriksen’s plight.
Denmark eventually lost their opening Group B game 1-0.
“Everyone agreed to play, and what we tried to do was unimaginable,” said an emotional Hjulmand.
“We have a bunch of gamers I am unable to reward sufficient. I could not be prouder of those individuals who take such excellent care of one another.
“They decide first of all not to do anything until we were sure that Christian was conscious, and that everything was OK.
“So we had two choices, both end the sport tonight or play tomorrow at noon. Everyone agreed on taking part in in the present day… The proven fact that the gamers tried to play the second and dominate… I’m very affected.
“All our thoughts and prayers are to Christian and his family right now. He’s one of the best players there is and he’s an even better person.”
