Cadiz v Barcelona stopped due to medical emergency in the stands

The match between Cadiz and Barcelona at the Estadio Nuevo Mirandilla had to be stopped in the 38th minute of the second half due to a medical emergency in the stands.

Medical services had to assist a spectator in one of the stands who had been suspected to have suffered a cardiac-related event.

The referee of the match, Carlos del Cerro Grande, was alerted to the incident in the south stand of the stadium and stopped the match while the medical services tried to resuscitate the spectator.

The Cadiz goalkeeper, Jeremias Ledesma, was even seen collecting a defibrillator from the away end of the stadium in order to ensure it got to the spectator in need as quickly as possible.
