|Piermario Morosini's death was tragedy that not only Livorno suffered (guardian.co.uk)|
The world was not watching when Piermario Morosini fell. Pescara's match against Livorno on Saturday was available to supporters with the right TV subscription packages, but it would require a fairly dedicated neutral to tune in for a game between fourth and 16th in Serie B. In any case, many of those in the stadium did not initially notice when the Livorno midfielder collapsed face first on to the turf midway through the first half at the Stadio Adriatico.
The world would catch up – footage of the fall being posted and reposted across social media sites within minutes of the incident. Minutes that felt like hours to those who were seeing events unfold live, as frantic workers were forced to break into and then move a car that had been left unattended and was blocking the entrance to the pitch, blocking the path of an ambulance that was to take Morosini to the nearby Santo Spirito hospital.
