Körfuboltamaður missir næstum augað

Körfuboltamaðurinn Akil Mitchell má þakka fyrir að hafa haldið sjóninni eftir að annað augað á honum var potað úr augntóftinni á honum.

Körfuboltamaðurinn Akil Mitchell má þakka fyrir að hafa haldið sjóninni eftir að annað augað á honum var potað úr augntóftinni á honum.

Akil Mitchell, who plays for the New Zealand Breakers, was in Auckland for an Australian NBL game on Thursday night when the incident happened.
The finger of an opposing player accidentally dislodged his eyeball.
The American fell to the ground holding his hands to his left eye and was rushed to hospital.

„I remember thinking oh man… this is kinda bad, but I actually felt it kind of out of place and that’s when I kind of freaked out a little bit.“

The 24-year-old said he remembered hearing the crowd and fellow players panicking and thought he would lose his sight and his career was over.

Mitchell var þó í góðu stuði eftir að sjúkraliðar náðu að pota auganu aftur á réttan stað.
