Two ambulances sped onto the pitch after two players crumpled after a shocking aerial collision.
Players from both teams checked the stricken pair and tried to check if unconscious ACS Poli Timisoara starlet Denis Harut could still breathe.
Defender Harut, 19, was taken to hospital.
And the other player involved, Sepsi OSK's Nigerian striker, Benjamin Kuku was harshly sent off.
Fans on social media were quick to voice their concern for Harut, whilst agreeing it was an accidental clash.

Some players who were watching even fell to the ground, appalled by what they had just seen, 35 minutes into the relegation battle.
