IN REMEMBRANCE

Snapshots from Piermario Morosini's professional soccer career.

The policeman responsible for the delay of an ambulance reaching stricken Livorno player Piermario Morosini has been automatically suspended Monday pending an internal investigation.

The 25-year-old Morosini, who was on loan from Serie A side Udinese, collapsed and died after suffering a cardiac arrest during a Serie B match at Pescara on Saturday.

A traffic police car blocked the ambulance's way into the stadium, creating the delay. A window had to be broken so the car could be moved, while players and officials were frantically gesturing for the ambulance to get there.

Pescara's mayor said a disciplinary sentence of a minimum of 11 days and a maximum of six months will be imposed on May 7.
