Iran Soccer Player Almost Loses Hand, or Worse, to Grenade During Game(Video)
Fans throw all kinds of things onto the pitch during soccer games.
During an Asian Champions League quarterfinal match between Sepahan FC (Iran) and al-Ahli SC (Saudi Arabia) in Iran, the result yesterday could have been deadly.
Sepahan midfielder Adel Kolahkaj found and casually tossed an object he apparently did not recognize as a grenade off the field. The instant it hit the ground, it exploded sending everyone in the vicinity running for cover. Kolahkaj was clearly lucky not to lose a hand.
Incredibly, the match was paused only briefly, then continued on to a scoreless draw.
