Eduard Dubinski suffered an appalling injury over the weekend. The 27-year-old Ukrainian fell on his head while attempting to jump over a table in his kitchen, and when he landed, his leg bent at an angle no leg should bend at. He was taken to hospital where doctors found that he had fractured both bones in his lower left leg and torn a ligament in his knee.
The injury was featured on the BBC News website today: it was accompanied by images of Dubinski lying with his face obscured by bandages and tubes coming out of him. A team of doctors worked for several hours straight in order to repair him so that he could walk again after being released from the hospital (though they did not succeed).
The Ukrainian goalkeeper was playing for Zorya in a match against Shakhtar.
Eduard Dubinski is a goalkeeper for the Ukrainian football club Zorya, which plays its home games at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium. On February 28th, 2016, Dubinski was playing in an away match against Shakhtar Donetsk when he suffered a crushing injury. The game was played at Zorya’s stadium—the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium—in Kyiv, Ukraine.
However, he made an error that would change his life forever.
However, he made an error that would change his life forever. On the second day of a skiing trip in the French Alps, Dubinski slipped on a patch of ice and fell into a tree stump. The result was a double fracture of his tibia and fibula, which is known as a compound fracture or open fracture. The injury can be extremely serious because it causes bleeding inside the leg, putting pressure on all organs within the body. It can also lead to permanent disability if not treated immediately.

Dubinski rushed out of his box to head the ball away from the goal, but it struck him hard on his way down. The impact knocked him unconscious and sent him to the hospital where he was diagnosed with a concussion.
Dubinski’s leg then bent at an angle no leg should bend at.
As Dubinski fell backward, the force of his body landing on the ground caused his leg to bend back at an unnatural angle. The two bones in his lower leg (the tibia and fibula) snapped like twigs. He was taken to the hospital where he was operated on, but it was too late—the injury had been so bad that he would never play professional football again.
The medical staff rushed to Dubinski’s aid and he was taken off the pitch on a stretcher. It is a truly horrific injury, but fortunately for Dubinski, he will not be able to play football again.
