Soccer Player Saves Opponent's Life

Posted: Updated:

A quick thinking soccer player may have saved an opponent's life after a brutal collision with the goalie.

During a Ukraine soccer game between Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk and Dynamo Kiev, soccer player Oleh Husyev was knocked unconscious.

Husyev had just taken a knee to the head from the Dnipro goalie.

Midfielder Jaba Kankava quickly reacted and used his fingers to remove Oleh Husyev's tongue from his airway so he could breath.

Husyev regained consciousness and was rushed to a hospital for a concussion and broken jaw.
