Ex-Everton star James acts quickly to help Al-Wakrah defender Coulibaly after cardiac arrest

Former Everton and Real Madrid ace James Rodriguez helped Ousmane Coulibaly after he collapsed with a cardiac arrest during a Qatari Stars League game.

Bein Sports reports James performed a life-saving move on Coulibaly who suffered cardiac arrest during a league match in Qatar.

Rodriguez was playing for Al-Rayyan against Al-Wakrah in the Qatari Stars League last weekend when Coulibaly was spotted collapsing in front of goal during the first half.

The Colombian was seen racing over to the aid of the opposition defender before medics could rush on to the scene.

James adjusted the head of the 32-year-old to allow him to be able to breathe before the medical team arrived to continue the treatment.

The game was temporarily halted before the severity of the situation led to its eventual abandonment – with the scoreline 1-0 to Al Rayyan at the time of Coulibaly’s collapse.

The Malian was taken to hospital where he is reported to be in a stable condition.
