Players taken off pitch as medics rush to fan in stands with emergency treatment in Sheffield Wednesday vs Wycombe

PLAYERS between Sheffield Wednesday and Wycombe were taken off the pitch as medics rushed to a fan in the stands with emergency treatment.

With Wycombe 1-0 up just before the half hour mark, there was a break in play due to a medical emergency in the home North stand.

A couple of minutes later and both sets of players went back into the changing rooms while medics treated the supporter in the stands.

Around ten minutes later, both teams were back out on the pitch, with Anis Mehmeti's opener cancelled out by Olamide Shodipo's equaliser.

Only in October Newcastle's match with Tottenham was suspended during the first half when the elderly gentleman suffered a cardiac arrest in the stands.

Dr Tom Pritchard was sat 30 rows away in the Gallowgate end and rushed to help by performing CPR before Newcastle club doctor Paul Catterson joined in the effort to resuscitate the supporter.

Newcastle confirmed the fan was later 'stable and responsive' in hospital after the major health scare which saw him stretchered out of the ground after 20 minutes of treatment.

Referee Andre Marriner stopped play as Spurs’ defender Sergio Reguilon spotted the emergency from the pitch.

Eric Dier then ran over to the dugout to call for a medical staffer to sprint into the stands with a crucial defibrillator.

The incident happened two minutes before half-time, with the visitors 2-1 up thanks to goals from Tanguy Ndombele and Harry Kane.

Speaking during the break in play, Sky Sports pundit David Ginola called on all fans to learn CPR.

The Frenchman himself suffered a heart attack back in 2017 and said it is 'vital' that more people know how to give the life-saving treatment.
