Teammate saves Martin Skrtel's life after being KO'd on field

Martin Skrtel saved from swallowing tongue by team-mate- actually plays

Ex-Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel was knocked unconscious, looked to have swallowed his tongue, and then played on for 45 minutes.

It was immediately clear Martin Skrtel was not okay, when the Slovakia defender took a ball right to the forehead in the first half of an global tune-up fixture in Thailand.

Quickly realising the severity of the situation, Ondrej Duda raced over and reached into Skrtel's mouth to keep his airways clear.
