Ukrainian soccer player saves opponent who swallows his tongue

Jaba Kankava was the hero in yesterday’s game.

A UKRAINIAN SOCCER player who was knocked unconscious has recovered after some quick thinking from an opposing player in yesterday’s game between Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk and Dynamo Kiev.

Kiev’s Oleh Husyev was knocked out when he took an accidental knee to the head from the goalkeeper. According to the live-blog from Dnipro’s official site, he appeared to swallow his tongue during the collision.

Without hesitation, Dnipro’s Jaba Kankava ran over to Husyev and cleared his airway.

Gusev was taken to the hospital with a concussion, a jaw bruise, and damage to three teeth, his club announced.
