Óscar Cabrera, Dominican player who plays for Cantbasket, is under observation at the Valdecilla Hospital, after suffering this Saturday a syncope during the EBA League match (Spanish Amateur Basketball League organized by the local Federation) that the Cantabrian team played against CB Santurzi, which led to the suspension of the match in the absence of 2.49 minutes before the conclusion of the first quarter.
The player vanished in the pavilion of La Albericia when he was about to take out the baseline and left the sports facility on a stretcher already conscious and showing his thumb up, receiving the applause of all the people present in the pavilion, according to Cantbasket in a statement.
