Ukrainian soccer player, Oleg Gusev probably has his opponent Jaba KanKava to thank for his life, after KanKava rushed to his aid after seeing him choking on his own tongue after a collision with goalie Denys Boyko.

Gusev collapsed on the floor unconscious after the collision and Kankava quickly turned him over and stuck his hand down Gusev’s throat to prevent him from choking to death. A few minutes after, Gusev was able to stand up and was taken on a stretcher to the hospital with a mild concussion, several bruises and a bruised jaw.
