Is it Diving if Your Unconscious?

The above video is from a provincial league match between Templeuve and Quevy in Belgium. As seen in the video, it appears that midfielder Julien Lecomte took an elbow to the back of the head/neck and went down in a pile in the box. Despite getting carted off the pitch, Lecomte received a yellow for diving, and since it was apparently his second yellow of the match, the red card came out. Reports indicate that Lecomte was diagnosed with cracked vertebrae and a concussion.
