Young footballer dies during match in Alicante

A 21 year old youth, Alejandro Benito, died on Saturday morning after collapsing while playing indoor football at the Pitiu Rochel pavillion in Alicante.

The incident occurred at around 11:30 during a charity match. The pavillion is next to the Rico Pérez stadium where the Hércules first team were training at the time and their doctor, Jeroni Llorca, was able to offer assistance.

Unfortunately, despite thirty minutes of CPR and the use of defibrillators, he was unable to revive the youth.
