On Tuesday, Germany and France were facing each other in their Euro 2020 soccer championship group F match. Before the match started at the Allianz Arena in Munich, it was interrupted by a “Greenpeace” paraglider that happened to injure several spectators.
Debris from the stadium fell on the field and the main grandstand, just missing the French coach Didier Deschamps. This is because the parachutist broke the wires for an overhead camera attached to the roof of the stadium. According to UEFA, it was a “reckless and dangerous” stunt that “caused injuries to several people attending the game who are now in hospital.” The governing body of European soccer also said “law authorities will take the necessary action” towards the protestor.
The protestor’s parachute had “Greenpeace” and a slogan “KICK OUT OIL!” written on it. He flew into the stadium where he seemed to lose control as he hit the wires. He then swerves towards the grandstand narrowly missing the heads of spectators. The paraglider landed on the field where he was approached by Antonio Rudiger and Robin Dosens. He was eventually directed away by security to the side of the field where they gave him medical attention.
