Recovering from heart attack

At 25, a Belgian football player suffered cardiac arrest on the pitch… before coming to his senses: "The lights have gone out"

According to doctors, Jente Van Genechten went into cardiac arrest after briefly losing consciousness on the pitch during a game. His heartbeat was irregular and after an examination, consultants decided to implant a defibrillator.
