Drago Vukovic of the Capital City Club Fox Berlin is on his way to recovery after the incident in the opening game at HSG Wetzlar on Friday.
“He is doing well so far. Headaches etc. are now also gone,”the foxes reported on Saturday via Twitter. Vukovic had swallowed his tongue in a collision, lost his breath and lost consciousness in the meantime.
The HSG team physician Marco Kettrukat had reacted thoughtfully and treated Vukovic still on the floor. The 33-year-old was taken to an accident hospital, where, according to the foxes, he was “again approachable after a short time”.
