As investigation into Diego Maradona’s death continues, a huge confession has been made by a nurse of his while he was alive. The new evidence will certainly be key in evaluating if it had anything to do with the eventual death of the former Argentine wizard.
Diego Maradona’s nurse has narrated how the former football legend fell and hit his head just few days before his unfortunate death.
Arguably the greatest footballer to ever play the beautiful game, 60-year-old Diego Maradona died of cardiovascular arrest on Wednesday, November 25, at his house in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
It was reported yesterday that officials have launched an investigation into the cause of his death after his daughters demanded to know the medication their father was on before he died.
In recent developments on the investigation, Diego Maradona’s nurse has now revealed that the legend fell, hit his head, and was alone ‘without help’ for 3 days. After the fall, it was alleged that the former Barcelona player was neither taken to a hospital for check-up nor given an MRI scan to determine the extent of the fall.
A lawyer for Gisela Madrid, Diego Maradona’s nurse reportedly said as cited by SunSport:
“Maradona fell on the Wednesday of the week before his death.”He fell and hit his head, but they didn’t take him to the hospital for an MRI or CT scan…”
