A play-off game of the top Czech hockey league was postponed on Wednesday after a fan in the audience died of heart attack. The 59-year-old man collapsed in the 5th minute of the quarterfinal best-of-seven game between Vítkovice and Sparta Prague; he died in the stadium despite resuscitation attempts by a doctor in the audience and by paramedics who arrived at the stadium. The man, who had a history of heart illness, was declared dead after more than 30 minutes. At the same time, Sparta Prague player Jakub Korejs was injured after hitting the sideboard and was taken to hospital with spinal injuries. The referees interrupted the play; both teams later agreed to finish the game on Thursday, and postpone the remaining games of the series by one day.
