Official: Cadiz vs Barcelona temporarily suspended due to medical emergency in the stands

Barcelona’s clash against Cadiz saw a drastic turn of events when the referee asked for the play to be abruptly stopped in the 82nd minute. The halt was initially thought to be momentary, but it slowly became clear that there was a serious medical emergency in the stands.

Early reports from Cadiz suggest that a supporter in the stands behind the hosts’ goal collapsed after suffering a heart-attack. The supporters immediately brought it to the notice of the match officials who informed the stadium’s medical staff to handle the emergency.

Cadiz goalkeeper Ledesma was seen passing on a defibrillator into the stands, clearly reflecting the severity of the situation. Eventually, the players were asked to return to the dressing rooms in the 105th minute, however, the clash has not yet been completely suspended officially.

It remains to be seen as to how the situation evolved and whether the remaining ten minutes of the game will be played out. Yet, the health of the fan is the utmost priority and Barca Universal wishes them a speedy recovery.
