Found February 03, 2012 on Holdout Sports:
During a recent Serie A soccer match in Italy between Inter Milan and Palermo which took place after a snowstorm, Inter Milan's Joel Obi aggressively chased a ball as it headed out of bounds. He couldn't slow down, so Obi dove over the advertising board and into a huge pile of snow.

Luckily the snow was soft, or that fall could have been pretty painful. Normally frostbite isn't something you worry about during a soccer match, but with the amount of snow Obi was covered with after he got up, we hope he got himself checked out as a precaution.

H/T Dirty Tackle.
