When people attend live sporting events, they take the risk of objects flying towards them from the field of play. It’s something that comes with the territory. Hence the liability jargon, that’s usually printed on the ticket used to gain entry.
Any sport involving a ball can be dangerous. Especially, if the ball were to go rogue and hit a fan in the crowd, as this woman quickly found out.
According to this LiveLeak video, during a soccer match between C.D. Feirense and FC Porto, one of the players took a shot at the goal that sailed wide-left.
I’m not sure what this woman was doing, but she wasn’t paying attention to the ball. The other fans around her clearly saw it coming, as they watched her take the ball right to the face. Maybe, next time she’ll pay more attention to what’s happening on the field.
