Usually ending up of life with the thing you loves the most is regarded as one of the most fortunate thing in one’s life. Few days ago a 23-year-old Indian soccer player died while trying to celebrate the goal he made few moments ago. This happened because of neck breaking flip.
Peter Biaksangzuala was a football player from India who died on Sunday, five days after he tried a somersault for celebration of goal made, but landed awkwardly on the pitch, which lead to his fatal spinal cord injury and ultimately death. Peter had scored a goal in the 61st minute for Bethlehem Vengthlang FC of the Mizoram Football Association last week.
“He was trying to do Germany’s Klose signature flip stunt, but it misfired unfortunately,” a source told Metro UK.
Biaksangzuala found the back of the net on a rebound and celebrated with a front handspring before going into his failed somersault. He landed face-first on the field and was surrounded right away by teammates who called for medical staff.
After playing on despite his horrific injury last week, his club announced on Sunday they would retire his No. 21 jersey as a remark of respect for a player who ends up his life because of injury.
