November 26th – Argentine legendary star Diego Maradona died of a sudden heart attack at home on the 25th at the age of 60. According to foreign media such as Reuters, Maradona’s lawyer Matias Morla posted on social media Twitter on the 26th that Maradona was not taken care of by medical personnel for 12 hours before his death, and that ambulances arrived for half an hour, and asked for a thorough investigation.
“It’s inexplicable that my friend was not cared for by health care of the medical staff for 12 hours,” Mora added, who said that it took half an hour for the ambulance to arrive, a silly “crime” and the fact that cannot be ignored, and he asked for a thorough investigation into the matter.
Several Argentine media reported that Maradona himself had suffered a serious health crisis before. He was admitted to the hospital earlier this month for brain surgery and was recovering at home. According to the Argentine media Horn, Maradona died at home.
On the evening of the 25th local time, the hospital conducted a preliminary autopsy of Maradona. The results showed that Maradona was a patient with dilated cardiomyopathy. He died of “acute heart failure” and the cause of heart failure was acute pulmonary edema.
