Egyptian Football Player, 30, Collapses from Heart Attack on Field

Egyptian football player Ahmed Refaat suffered cardiac arrest during a match with Al Ittihad Alexandria Club, becoming the third player this week to collapse on the field.

Refaat, who is only 30 years old, suddenly collapsed towards the end of the game as medics arrived on the pitch for emergency intervention.

The player’s heartbeat ceased for over an hour before he was rushed to Amzam Hospital for urgent care.

Modern Future FC expressed concern over the incident.

“Ahmed Refaat’s heart stopped for more than an hour, despite all resuscitation attempts by the medical staff at Zamzam Hospital near the stadium, before his heart rate improved gradually.”

“However, his condition is still medically unstable, which prevents his transfer. Unless his health condition stabilizes, the player will continue to receive treatment and undergo the necessary tests.”

“The club are following the situation on a momentary basis from the hospital, and everyone will be updated immediately.”

“We would like to call on the media to respect the player’s personal life as well as his health and ask the Egyptian football fans to pray for Ahmed Refaat to be safe and sound as soon as possible,” the club said.

Medical supervisor and cardiology consultant for the Modern Future FC, Amr Osman, said Refaat’s heart condition is “rare and baffling.”

“Refaat was resuscitated for two full hours, and every time he was resuscitated, the player’s heartbeat accelerated, returning to point zero, and we had to begin the resuscitation process again.”

“The heart’s condition returned to point zero once more approximately every five minutes,” Osman said.
