The collision caused the player to be unconscious. He stopped breathing and suffered cardiac arrest.

Despite the tragic death of the player, Persela Football Club strived and continued to fight against Semen Padang. Persela FC succeeded in beating the other team with a score of 2-0. Too sad though that Huda was not able to witness his team’s victory in the match. Huda’s life was gone in an instant.
