Following a throw-in awarded to the Danish national team, Christian Eriksen, who was having an outstanding game, approached the touchline to take the throw-in from a teammate.

The players who were gathered around him thought for a second that it was maybe a minor injury but after taking another look at him, it was evident that he was motionless. Denmark captain Simon Kjaer and referee Anthony Taylor were the two people who knew what had happened and reacted immediately. Anthony Taylor beckoned on the medics to come quickly while Kjaer who was closest to Eriksen cleared his airways before starting a CPR on him.

Seconds after, the medics arrived and used a defribulator on him. He regained consciousness and was put on oxygen before being taken directly to the hospital.

His parents, children, and wife were in the stadium when it happened and it was a terrible experience for everyone who was inside the stadium.
