The Daily Drool: Jaba Kankava

15 Apr

Jaba Kankava2Midfielder Jaba plays for FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk. He has represented Georgia at the U17, U19, U21 and senior levels. Not only is he a big hot daddy, he’s a lifesaver – literally. In a match on March 30, 2014, Dynamo Kiev captain Oleh Husyev was knocked unconscious and swallowed his tongue. Quick thinking Jaba immediately stuck his hand down his throat and cleared his airways. He got bit for his troubles but he saved Oleh’s life. You can read about/see the dramatic rescue here. Amazing!

    HERO! Also, his name sounds like a mixed drink in Cancun.

    I read something from the Secret Physio talking about how more players should be educated in basic CPR at the very least. I think this is proof of how it needs to happen. Hats off to Jaba
