Scottish Soccer Game Abandoned After Fan Collapses, BBC Reports

May 05, 2013

A Scottish Premier League soccer game was abandoned today after a spectator collapsed and was hospitalized, the British Broadcasting Corp. reported.

The incident happened at the start of the second half of Kilmarnock’s home match with Hibernian. The game was halted by referee Kevin Clancy with the scores tied at 1-1.

Medical staff attended to the man at the side of the field before an ambulance arrived and he was taken to the hospital, the BBC said. After the initial delay the game was abandoned.

“The length of time the players were off the park was a problem but the overriding factor was respect for the fan and his family,” Kilmarnock Chairman Michael Johnstone was cited as saying by the BBC.
