The person in charge of the morning shift, called Gisela, who changed the guard with the assistant who said that at 6:30 a.m. Diego was alive, declared it before the prosecutor.
– A country neighbor recorded the last image of Diego Maradona alive
The nurse who cared for Diego Armando Maradona (60) during the night of Tuesday and the early hours of Wednesday declared in the case that before leaving at 6.30 in the morning, he verified that the former footballer was alive. To that statement was added that of the nurse who said that, after the changing of the guard, “Averaging 7:30, I would have heard him move inside the room.”
That first witness, named Ricardo, appeared to testify before the prosecutor Laura Capra at the Functional Instruction Unit (UFI) of Benavídez. The administrative coordinator of the group of nurses also declared who spoke about the modality of the service.
Then, the other medical assistant, called Gisela, made an extension of her statement, who took the shift from 6.30 onwards and explained that she had heard those movements in Diego’s room at 7.30.
The statement changes the panorama regarding the fact that now the last person who declared having seen him alive is the nurse Ricardo at 6.30 on Wednesday and not his nephew Johnny Espósito, Mary’s son (María Rosa), who had seen him at 23.30 Tuesday night.
Thus, the new data contradict those first versions that indicated that 12 hours had passed without anyone having assisted who was the coach of Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata.
According to the death data calculated by the forensic doctor who did the autopsy, Maradona passed away around 12 on WednesdayAfter his psychologist Carlos Díaz and his psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov entered the room and noticed that he did not react when they tried to wake him up.
Likewise, it was established that at 12:17 (to be confirmed through a report from the cell phone service provider) Maradona’s personal secretary (Maxi Pomargo) required medical assistance, and an ambulance from the company + VIDA was present at 12:28, according to film records of Barrio San Andrés.
In the following minutes, the entry of different ambulances from other medical service providers was observed. In the house in the San Andrés neighborhood, in the Tigre district, in addition to Maxi there was an employee hired for his physical security and a cook.
It was also established that at 12:16 hours a call was generated to the 911 emergency service requiring an ambulance, by Leopoldo Luque, with the relevant audio recording.
The urine and blood extracted in Maradona’s autopsy will begin to be analyzed for the toxicological tests ordered by the Justice. The samples will be sent to the laboratories of the Scientific Police of San Martín, whose experts will be in charge of detecting if the former soccer player had traces of alcohol or some type of drug, drug or toxic substance.
After being discharged from the Olivos Clinic, Maradona continued to recover from an operation on his head in a house in San Andrés, an exclusive and developing private neighborhood, located between Nordelta and the Villanueva complex, on the border between Tigre and Escobar.
The house was adapted so that he could continue with his treatment after the operation for a chronic subdural hematoma on the left side of his head.
The autopsy showed that he died as a result of a “Acute Pulmonary Edema secondary to exacerbated chronic heart failure ”and discovered dilated cardiomyopathy in his heart, a pathology that causes enlargement of the heart chambers and has multiple causes. Diego’s heart was preserved to be studied and it was found to be twice the size of a normal one.
