During a soccer match in Turkey between Trabzonspor and Galatasaray, two players were injured by objects (including a smoke bomb) that were thrown onto the pitch by fans from the stands.
Galatasaray striker Burak Yilmaz, who used to play for Trabzonspor, was struck in the head by a foreign object (possibly a water bottle) and dropped to the ground. As Trabzonspor defender Giray Kacar went to check on him, a smoke bomb went off near Yilmaz's rear end.
Both players were treated for their injuries and fortunately were able to return to the match, which ended in a scoreless draw.
