BAFOUSSAM, 9 November 2020 – Football star and former captain of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroun, Samuel Eto’o cheated death, escaping uninjured from an accident in Cameroun Sunday.
Eto’o, 39, was involved in a head-on collusion with a bus while traveling on the poorly constructed Douala-Bafoussam highway.
Eto’o checked into a hospital out of abundance of caution but was discharged by a doctor who said he had no injuries.
A video gone viral on social media showed Eto’o sitting on the floor besides the driver of the bus that nearly killed him, offering words of comfort and urging the visibly badly shaken driver to drive more carefully.
Eto’to was driving a robust four-wheel drive truck. Observers say he would have been certainly hurt had he been driving a smaller, less robust vehicle.
