“Eriksen had several medics around, but I was in the bedroom, and my girlfriend had to do CPR for 16 minutes. It was a race against time,” Dodd recalled.
“It was a time when I had to fight for my life. The time I spent in the hospital was the worst time of my life,” he said. I was sweating,” he said.
“I was told that I could return to active duty with a defibrillator inserted. The doctors encouraged me,” he said. “It took a long time for CPR to restore my broken ribs and sternum and to restore my muscle mass to its previous state.” .
Dodd, who suffered the same pain as himself, was presented with a jersey by Eriksen. Eriksen presented his FC United jersey with his autograph and ‘Never give up Dodd’ written on it as a gift. He is also said to have communicated that he would like to meet with Dodd.
Dodd said, “I heard that Eriksen asked the club to ‘meet Dodd when he comes back.’ I want to meet and talk about what we actually went through.”
