In the 16th round of the French Ligue 1, Lorient hosted Rennes and the guest celebrated with 3-0. After the match, a tragedy happened that all French media write about.

The match ended and all the players left the field. There were only a few workers on it who came out to set up special spotlights. One of the searchlights fell and killed the groundsman Lorient about ten minutes after the installation.

As it turned out earlier, the deceased groundsman was 38 years old and was a volunteer left behind by a woman with three minor children. A police investigation has been opened to determine the circumstances of the accident.

L’Equipe writes that the groundsman was screaming in pain when heavy equipment crashed on him and those present tried to save him. He was very quickly transferred to the hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
