Footballer Christian Benítez dies at 27 after suffering heart attack

Former Birmingham City striker Christian Benítez died in hospital in Qatar today from complications leading to cardiac arrest at the age of 27. The striker from Ecuador died just weeks after a £10million move to Qatar side, El Jaish.

The Ecuadorian Football Federation said on their website that Benitez 'had severe stomach pain, was rushed to a hospital, where after a few hours suffered cardio respiratory arrest, which ended his life.' 

Christian is survived by his wife, children and his father, former Ecuador international footballer Ermen Benítez. May his soul rest in peace..amen.

Just a quick correction that a heart attack and cardiac arrest are two very different but commonly confused terms...

It was a sad day for EL JAISH FC and fans. Unexpected but God took him away from us here in Qatar. We never enjoy christian as we expected when he joined us here in Qatar but God know the best. May his soul Rest in perfect peace. May almighty Allah be with his father,wife,children and other family and friends he left behind. We all miss xtian. #sad #crying for his sudden exit.
