    Unhappy Italian footballer Morosini dies after collapse on pitch

    May God rest his soul....this sort of thing is so sad and honestly could happen anywhere....



    Ex-Italy under-21 footballer Piermario Morosini has died following a suspected heart attack on the pitch, football officials say.

    The midfielder was playing for Livorno in the Serie B match at Pescara when he fell to the ground in the 31st minute.

    A defibrillator was used and Morosini, 25, was taken to hospital. The game was halted with other players in tears.

    All league games in Italy this weekend have been called off following Morosini's death.

    Morosini had been on loan to Livorno from the Serie A club Udinese.

    He collapsed face down and appeared to be in convulsion. The referee's assistant drew the referee's attention and he stopped the game.
    The footballer was taken to Pescara's Santo Spirito hospital by ambulance, but he could not be revived.

    Scary thing.... very similar situation to what happened to Bolton's Fabrice Muamba a few weeks ago. The odd thing is that both players passed prematch physicals, at least I assume Morosini did as I know Bolton's doctors stated Muamba passed one before the game. So tragic.

    Sadly, this has been happening far too often lately, a player collapsing on the pitch.
    You never stand so tall as when you kneel to help a child.
