We reported earlier about the tragic death of Hijo Del Perro Aguayo of Lucha Libre who passed away on Saturday morning while working a promotional match with Rey Mysterio for the CRASH promotion in Tijuana, Mexico.
With Tigre Uno and Manik also participating in the match, Aguayo’s death came from suffering a whiplash in the ring shortly after a spot with Mysterio. He was rushed to a hospital just a block away but was pronounced dead at around 1am local time.
According to MedioTiempo.com, The cause of death has been revealed as it was a stroke caused by cervical spinal damage. The medical report confirmed that he suffered from whiplash.
As for the doctor in charge not being present at ringside during the accident, it should be noted that he was busy treating two other wrestlers backstage. The doctor defended the delay in responding to Aguayo, saying it was not malpractice.
Medio Tiempo also noted that Aguayo was carried away from the ring on a piece of plywood as a way to get him backstage as fast as possible. He was then moved to a stretcher and into the ambulance. The doctor also defended that decision.
Once Aguayo arrived at the hospital, Dr. Ernesto Franco and other specialists tried to resuscitate Aguayo for about an hour. He was then given an MRI to rule out other causes and his death was pronounced.
Perro Aguayo Sr. hasn’t been informed of his son’s tragic death according to reports from ESPN Deportes. The Mexican wrestling legend is not in good health and there is concern over how he will take the news.
