MARADONA’S DOCTOR INVESTIGATED FOR MANSLAUGHTER
Diego Maradona’s doctor is being investigated for possible manslaughter following the football legend’s death.
Maradona died of a heart attack Wednesday at his home on the outskirts of the capital, Buenos Aires.
Police raided the home and clinic of Leopoldo Luque on Sunday morning as they try to establish whether there was negligence in Maradona’s medical treatment.
Luque denies any wrongdoing.
“There was no medical error on anyone’s part. Diego had a heart attack. In a patient with his condition, it is the most common thing in the world to die like that. Everything possible was done to prevent that event,” Luque said.
