Hockey player inexplicably collapsed on the ice as medical personnel rushed to his side

There was no one near him when he went down.


In a frightening moment, Michael Neuvirth, a goalie for the Philadelphia Flyers, collapsed in his own goal during Saturday's game against the New Jersey Devils, and his teammates and medial personal immediately rushed to his side.

Neuvirth  was awaiting a faceoff on the other end of the ice when he just collapsed.

As soon as his teammates saw what happened, they immediately rushed to his side.

He was awake as medical personnel took him off the ice.

Afterwards, Flyers general manager Ron Hextall said Neuvirth had been suffering from a chest cold, and he was taken to a local hospital for observation.
