A 28-year-old soccer player suffered a cardiac arrest during training and ‘dies’ before being quickly taken back to life by doctors

Ukrain­ian defend­er Olev Danchenko was mirac­u­lous­ly revived after his heart stopped dur­ing training.

The 28-year-old, who is on loan at Zorya Luhan­sk from AEK Athens, was attend­ing a train­ing camp in Turkey when the hor­rif­ic inci­dent happened.

Danchenko, who was play­ing in the Cham­pi­ons League with Shakhtar Donet­sk, fell to the ground and went into car­diopul­monary arrest as med­ical staff rushed to the scene.

Accord­ing to Skai, an Aus­tri­an team mem­ber at the scene had a defib­ril­la­tor and used it on Danchenko.

How­ev­er, it did­n’t seem to work for a while, leav­ing Danchenko in a “dead” state with no pulse.

He was even­tu­al­ly resus­ci­tat­ed and tak­en by ambu­lance to the inten­sive care unit.

A state­ment from Shakhtar’s club on social media read: “Wish­ing Olev Danchenko a speedy recovery”.

A for­mer Shakhtar play­er suf­fered a clin­i­cal death at a train­ing camp in Turkey.

“Let’s live strong, we are with you”.

Danchenko was in poor health exact­ly one year after his wife Vic­to­ria died in a car acci­dent at the young age of 27.

I was in the car with her when Kia Ser­rat crashed into a truck and a high­way guardrail.

Unfor­tu­nate­ly, Vic­to­ria died at the scene.

The cou­ple met on a train in 2017 and got mar­ried three years later.
