Croatian Firefighters Get Emergency Call As They Watch World Cup Match
13 July 2018, 10:52
This is the heroic moment an emergency call came in as Croatian firefighters watched their football team in a nerve-racking penalty shootout.
The Zagreb Fire Department received a callout as Ivan Rakitic took the final penally against Russia on Saturday.
The firefighters’ response was epic as they jumped into action as soon as the alarm bell began to ring - meaning they missed the winning shot.
A couple of their colleagues did manage to watch the moment, which put Croatia through to the semi-final where they beat England in extra time.
It’s gone viral after the department released the video to remind everyone to remain safe during World Cup celebrations.
