Medics blamed for Morosini death during match
An inquest into the death of Piermario Morosini during a Serie B
match last year has blamed four medics for their inadequate
treatment of the soccer player.
Morosini collapsed and died during Livorno’s match at Pescara on
April 14 because of a heart attack. Forensic tests later revealed
he had a genetic heart disease.
The 25-year-old Morosini was on loan from Serie A team
The three judges say the absence of a defibrillator had ”a
causal role in the death of Morosini.” They criticize the doctors
of both clubs, the paramedic and the first doctor to attend to
Morosini upon his arrival at the hospital.
Most of the criticism has been directed at paramedic Vito
Molfese, whom the judges say should have assumed the role of leader
and immediately used a defibrillator.
