Pekita Bandung Raya Striker Suffers Heart Attack

Sekou Camara, a Mali striker who played for Pelita Bandung Raya (PBR), died from a heart attack during a practice session in Bandung, West Java, on Saturday.

Camara, 27, reportedly fell during the practice session and died on the way to the hospital.

"Camara was pronounced dead at 11:48 p.m. due to heart failure," PBR chairman Marco Garcia Paulo said early Sunday, as quoted by

Camara joined PBR in May 2013 after several months of playing for Persiwa Wamena. He had moved to Indonesia to join the Soccer Association of Aceh Pidie (PASP Sigli) in 2011.

Camara is now among a list of players who have died during or after a training session, or a match.

On March 15, 2009, Jumadi "Pele" Abdi, center back for soccer club PKT Bontang, died after undergoing surgery and intensive treatment for an abdominal problem he developed during a match against Persela Lamongan a day before.

On April 3, 2000, Eri Irianto of Persebaya Surabaya died from a heart attack during an Indonesian League match.
