New Normal: 21-Year-Old Greek Football Player Dies on the Pitch Following Cardiac Arrest

A 21-year-old footballer died during a match after a sudden cardiac arrest with no defibrillator or ambulance available at the First Municipal Stadium during a match against Ermionida on Wednesday.

The attacking midfielder collapsed with just five minutes on the clock while playing for Greek team Ilioupoli. Doctors from both teams rushed in and tried to revive him, according to local reports. Unfortunately, the ambulance arrived at the scene for another 20 minutes so he was not revived immediately, the Sun reported. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

His death was announced by his team through social media without giving any further information about his death.

The club wrote [translated]: “Our Aleko, our friend, our brother, you left so unjustly. The whole team, the whole city is mourning today. The words do not come out… only an unbearable pain and a knot in the stomach. Have a good trip Alecara.”

May his soul Rest in Peace.

This seems to be happening a lot.
What do all of these cases have in common?
