In a bizarre incident a young footballer has been killed after injuring his spine in a post-goal celebration.

Peter Biaksangzuala, 23 was performing a series of somersaults after kicking home an important equaliser. The local crowd of Khawzawl (a town near to India’s eastern border with Myanmar) went into raptures at the goal.

But Biaksangzuala missed a flip and landed on his head. As he lay on the ground his team mates jumped on top of him.

It soon became apparent the prostrate Biaksangzuala wasn’t moving and something untoward had happened. The players were peeled off him and a stretcher was called.

Biaksangzula was rushed to hospital. Doctors attempted to repair the damage done to his spine. But the young soccer star’s condition deteriorated and he died on Sunday.

While there is a long history of soccer players injuring themselves in post-goal celebrations, this is the first recorded death.
