A Lorient groundsman dies after floodlight falls on him from above


Lorient‘s Ligue 1 match against Rennes on Sunday was overshadowed by events after full time, where a groundsman was killed in a freak accident.

Some 10 minutes after the final whistle at the Stade de Moustoir, a floodlight fell from the stand on to a groundsman working on the pitch.

The medical services, who were still present at the stadium, were quickly on the scene to treat the stricken groundsman.

He was taken to a hospital in Lorient but sadly died of his injuries.
