Demons star rescued after pool training accident


//

Melbourne forward Christian Petracca has been rescued from the bottom of a swimming pool after a training incident went horribly wrong.

Petracca and his Demons teammates were involved in hypoxic training session at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre on Wednesday when the youngster failed to resurface from beneath the water.

The training session involved players being asked to hold medicine balls under water for a period of time and Petracca pushed himself beyond his limits before being rescued.

It is understood that the training exercises is not one that was unfamiliar to the 23-year-old.

Hypoxic training is also known as intermittent hypoxic therapy and is designed to improve human athletic performance due to the body adapting to working under reduced oxygen supply.

Despite the training scare, Petracca was back at Demons training on Friday before Saturday's clash against Hawthorn at the MCG.

The Demons are looking to get back on the winners list after starting the season by winning just one of their first five six matches this season.

A much-maligned player, Petracca's patchy form has mirrored that of his team as he has averaged a career-low 16.2 disposals per game and managed just five goals in six games.
