Fast Acting Ref Performs CPR on the Ice


Midway through the first period of a Swedish Allsvenskan league hockey game, Niklas Lihagen of Orebro HK  took a hit and collapsed to the ice. Unlike most normal hockey checks, Lihagen didn’t just jump back up on the ice; this hit caused some real damage, Lihagen had gone into cardiac arrest.

Fortunately for him, the referee, Wolmer Edqvist, who also works as an ambulance driver quickly noticed what had happened and stopped play. Edqvist immediately went to Lihagen’s side and began CPR to restart the heart.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Thanks to Edqvist’s quick reactions, Lihagen was rushed to the hospital where he is in stable condition; the remainder of the game was postponed.

    Glad your ok! It looked like it was freaky for you. Good job to the referee who gave you the CPR & had the experience. I think all referee’s & coaching staff, etc should have to be CPR certified. But either way that is neither here nor there. Just glad your ok. 🙂

    Sincerely,
