Football Player Dies After Being Struck by Lightning in Friendly Match
In a tragic incident that has shocked the footballing world, an Indonesian footballer lost his life after being struck by lightning during a friendly match in Singapore. The victim, identified as Septain Raharja, was a 35-year-old player who was representing 2 FLO FC Bandung against FBI Subang at the Siliwangi Stadium in Bandung, West Java on Saturday, February 10.
The news of Raharja’s untimely demise has sent shockwaves through the football community, and fans and local players and coaches in Singapore are mourning the loss of the talented athlete. Unfortunately, this is not the first time such a tragic incident has occurred in the country. Almost a year ago, a young footballer from Bojonegoro, East Java, also suffered a lightning strike at the same stadium.
During the Soeratin U-13 Cup in 2023, the young player experienced a cardiac arrest after being struck by lightning and was immediately rushed to the Ibnu Sina Hospital in Bojonegoro. Thankfully, he was able to recover consciousness after receiving prompt medical treatment.
Sadly, cases of footballers being struck by lightning have been reported in various parts of the world, with Brazil being particularly affected. In 2023, a 21-year-old player named Caio Hemrique suffered a similar fate and tragically succumbed to his injuries in the hospital.
These incidents serve as a reminder of the dangers that can arise when playing outdoor sports during inclement weather. It is crucial for both players and organizers to prioritize safety and take necessary precautions to mitigate the risks associated with lightning strikes.
The footballing community is devastated by the loss of Septain Raharja, and his untimely death serves as a somber reminder of the need for increased awareness and safety measures in sports. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family, friends, and teammates during this difficult time..
