The Athlete: Belgian soccer player Anthony Van Loo
The Injury: Cardiac arrhythmia
Why It Was So Crazy: We don't want to downplay Kevin Ware's at all. But, at the very least, even if his right leg is never the same again, he'll be alive. Back in June 2009, Van Loo died during a game. He collapsed on the field due to a heart condition and died. But, thankfully, he knew about the condition beforehand and had a defibrillator implanted inside his chest to "shock" his heart in the event of an incident like that. So, within a few minutes, he was alive again. How crazy is that?
