A man dies of a heart attack while playing soccer in Mérida

Despite paramedics' efforts to save his life, a man dies of a heart attack after a soccer game in Merida.

Moments of tension and consternation were experienced in Mérida, Mexico after a man died of a heart attack in the middle of a soccer game in the east of the city.

The events occurred at the Polígono CTM park after a 33-year-old man finished playing the first half of a soccer game and was about to play the second half.

At one point, the man fell to his knees in the middle of the field, and that alerted his companions, so they almost immediately called the emergency services.

Paramedics from the Secretaría de Seguridad Pública (SSP) arrived at the scene and performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation maneuvers, but their efforts were in vain, as the young man did not survive.

The young man was placed on a stretcher, and a stretcher bearer was placed on it to perform CPR maneuvers while the stretcher was transferred to the ambulance.

It is worth mentioning that after an hour of cardiopulmonary massage, the young man showed weak vital signs, so he was transferred to a hospital, where he unfortunately died.

A similar case was recently experienced but with a different mismatch.

Unlike this man, in the past days, we reported in American Post, a similar case, where an adult of about 50 years of age suffered a heart attack, which caused the mobilization of emergency services, who applied CPR and managed to save him.

The work of the paramedics has been crucial in both cases to avoid death.
