Verónica Ojeda, ex-partner of Diego Maradona and mother of Diego Fernando Maradona, and his current partner, Mario Baudry, legal representative of that son of the soccer star, denounced that the world champion did not have “even the minimum” medical attention in the previous days upon his death.
“They knew that at some point this was going to happen, everything got out of hand now. They didn’t think that at that moment they were going to die. I want to see all of them imprisoned,” Ojeda said in a documentary produced by the channel. All News, in which he criticized the care Maradona received in the weeks prior to his death, which occurred on November 25, 2020.
“When they wanted to see him well, they came a day before and gave him serums so that he would be well suited if he had to sign something the next day. If not, they threw him away as he was and left him with ‘Charly’ drinking wine”, added the mother of Diego Fernando Maradona, 8 years old.
Baudry added that if the soccer star “had been in any other house, he would be alive today.”
“From the file it appears that, with a minimum of attention, today Diego would be alive. He did not have the minimum attention, there was no element to attend to him nor did they treat him with affection, they left him lying in the room. In the case it appears that they drugged him so that he could sleep and get rid of it, “explained the legal representative of one of ‘Pelusa’s children.
In the same documentary, Lucas Farias appears, the first policeman who entered the home where Maradona was serving a home stay.
“It did not seem like a home hospitalization, it seemed commonplace. It seems to me that a person in a home hospitalization has more elements, which there were not there,” he said.
Colin Campbell Irigoyen, a neighboring doctor who arrived to assist Maradona before the ambulances, said he found the former soccer player lying on the bed, a guard giving him mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and a nurse giving him heart massages.
“As soon as I enter I ask them how long he has been like this, lying down and without vital signs. It will have been 10 or 15 minutes until the first ambulance arrived with the elements, with a defibrillator, a first-aid kit, an airway set. We managed to put one on him. access route but we could not access by air. The doctor in charge of the ambulance tried to see if it had any type of electrical activity, but neither did it and we continue with the maneuvers, “he said.
In addition, Rocío Soledad Frank, Maradona’s masseuse, said that in the last meetings she had “it was difficult for her to understand him” because “he spoke strangely.”
“At one point his left arm begins to shake and he tells me that his blood pressure is high. He tells a boy who was there to bring him the pressure pill. He brought it to him with a beer. That boy was Charly”, said about Carlos Orlando Ibáñez, accused of being responsible for supplying alcohol and marijuana to Maradona.
The traumatologist Diego Eyharchet agrees with Frank, who said that Maradona was seen as “more deteriorated.”
The 1986 world champion with Argentina in Mexico died on November 25 in a private neighborhood on the outskirts of Buenos Aires and the autopsy determined that he died as a result of “acute lung edema secondary to exacerbated chronic heart failure.”
They also discovered a “dilated cardiomyopathy” in his heart.
The Argentine Justice formed a medical board that analyzes if there was a “deficient medical attention”.
Those investigated by the Argentine Justice are the neurosurgeon Leopoldo Luque, designated as Maradona’s family doctor, the psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov, the psychologist Carlos Díaz, the doctor Nancy Forlini, the nurse coordinator Mariano Perroni and the nurses Ricardo Almirón and Dahiana Gisela Madrid.
