Argentina Soccer Player Dies After Hitting Head On Concrete Wall During Match
Emanuel Ortega, a 21-year-old Argentine soccer player, died on Thursday of injuries he suffered during a match last month when he fell into a concrete wall located just feet from the playing field.

Ortega, who played for San Martin, was vying for the ball late in the first half of the April 29th match against Juventud Unida when he appears to lose his balance and careen forward. Ortega’s opponent immediately signaled for help and the match was stopped while an ambulance arrived to transport Ortega to the hospital.

His team (via Argentina’s Clarin.com) later announced Ortega suffered two skull fractures and underwent surgery last week. He died at Sanatorium Trinidad Mitre on Thursday.

Argentina’s soccer federation (AFA), which called Ortega’s death a “tragedy,” put out a statement Thursday afternoon, announcing the suspension of all play this weekend to honor Ortega.

The story says he lost his balance, but to me it looks like the opposing team pushed him

Maybe he was trying to get ahead?

This is the typical epidural haematoma story, the same one that Natasha Richardson had and died from in a 3rd world shithole called Canada.

Why don't they wear helmets like hockey players? Between headers and crashes, it would make sense.
