Cameroonian Footballer Dies After Being Hit By Thrown Object From Stands.
Tragic news as reports confirm the death of Cameroonian striker Albert Ebossé, 24, after being struck by an object thrown by spectators during a match between his team JS Kabylie and USM Alger in Tizi Ouzou in Algeria.
Ebossé had scored a goal leading to his club’s victory over Tizi Ouzou and was hit at the end of the game when players were making their way to their changing rooms. He was rushed to hospital but was later declared dead.
It is unclear what the object was that hit him but some local newspapers reported that fans of the losing side had thrown rocks at Ebossé and teammates in anger. After having signed with JS Kabylie in July 2013, Ebossé became the leading scorer in the Algerian league during the 2013-14 season with a total of 17 goals.
An investigation is due to be carried out into the circumstances surrounding his death by the Ministry of Interior and Local Government.
Such a tragic and unnecessary loss. Our deepest condolences to his family and friends.
