Luton’s Tom Lockyer undergoing medical tests after cardiac arrest at Bournemouth

December 18 – Luton Town captain Tom Lockyer is undergoing tests and scans at hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest during a Premier League game at the weekend.

Lockyer, who also collapsed during a game in May and underwent heart surgery before receiving the all-clear, fell to the ground during Luton’s match against Bournemouth on Saturday which was subsequently abandoned.

“While our captain Tom Lockyer remains in hospital following the cardiac arrest he suffered on the pitch at Bournemouth yesterday, we understand that supporters are concerned for him and that there is widespread media interest in his condition,” Luton posted on X. “Tom is still undergoing tests and scans, and is awaiting the results before the next steps for his recovery are determined.”

Lockyer, 29, received seven minutes of treatment from medical staff on the field at Bournemouth’s Vitality Stadium.

The Welsh international was carried off on a stretcher after the players had gone to the dressing rooms. The game was then called off in the 65th minute at 1-1. Luton said players from both teams “were in no state of mind to continue with the game.”
