Watch: Borussia Dortmund Fan Dies of Heart Attack at Mainz Game, Silencing Crowd of 81,000

Borussia Dortmund beat Mainz on Sunday afternoon in the Bundesliga, but the details of the game pale in comparison to the news that a Borussia Dortmund fan died of an apparent heart attack at the stadium, during the first half of the contest. The news made the normally raucous stadium eerily quiet.

There were actually two Borussia Dortmund fans who suffered heart attacks during the game, but the second was reported to be in stable condition before the game ended.

Fans sang “You’ll Never Walk Alone” at the end of the match.

Aside from the tragedy, goals by Marco Reus and Shinji Kagawa led to a 2–0 victory for Dortmund.
