Watch Hero Soccer Player Save Opposing Goalie From Choking

The Czech First League league game on Sunday may have ended in disaster if it weren’t for one of the team’s quick-thinking strikers saving an opposing player from choking to death.
During the first half of the 0-0 game, Bohemians 1905 goalkeeper Martin Berkovec accidentally ran smack into his teammate Daniel Krch, leaving them both injured.
Berkovec, however, was knocked unconscious and fell on his back.
While referees signaled medical officials onto the field, Slovacko striker Francis Kone didn’t hesitate jumping into action.
Kone climbed on top of Berkovec’s motionless body and pulled the goalie’s tongue out of his mouth. If Kone hadn’t acted so quickly, Berkovec would most likely have choked to death.

Save a life. The highest act of humanity?
All to often we seem to be unaware of our common humanity.
I, first realized that, when I heard a Secretary of State say the unbeleiveable.
“I think this is a very hard choice, but the price–we think the price is worth it.” — Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on 60 Minutes (5/12/96)
Since then, I think about children, human life, and “wars” very differently.
Kudos to this man who forgot about the game and did a mitzvah.
Hope I get the chance and recognize that chance.
Dona Nobis Pacem
