Oleh Husyev, a striker on Ukraine’s Dynamo Kiev, was midair competing for a cross when he took a knee to the head from the opposing team’s keeper, Denys Boykol. This caused Husyev to swallow his own tongue, blocking his air passageways.

Luckily, before his tongue caused Husyev to suffocate, an opposing player’s quick thinking saved his life.

After being revived, Husyev was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for a bruised jaw, a concussion and three damaged teeth.
