Most popular sports video on YouTube today: SV Roeselare’s Anthony Van Loo had a heart attack in a match on Monday night.

Van Loo was diagnosed with a heart condition last year, and had a defibrillator implanted just in case something like this were to happen. Luckily for him it worked, as evidenced circa the 10 second mark in the video.

Almost immediately upon his collapse, Van Loo’s implanted life-support kicked in, shocking him. Ten seconds later he sat up, and with the aid of his coaches and teammates walked off of the field. What would possess a man to play soccer with the threat of such an occurrence is beyond me.

Hats off to the inventors of that defibrillator.
