The physicians and healthcare professionals who treated Diego Armando Maradona during his final days are to be tried for manslaughter in the death of the late Argentine football legend, it was announced.
All seven health care professionals who were treating Argentine football legend Diego Armando Maradona when he underwent surgery and eventually died have been charged with malpractice and other crimes by a San Isidro (Greater Buenos Aires) court Monday.
Diego Maradona's doctor is under investigation for manslaughter four days after the football idol died of a heart attack at his home, the Argentinean news agency Telam reported on Sunday.
Diego Maradona was recovering Wednesday after an operation for bleeding in his skull, his personal doctor said. Maradona had a subdural hematoma, which is an accumulation of blood between a membrane and his brain, said Dr. Leopoldo Luque, a neurologist who performed Tuesday’s operation.
