The results of the postmortem examination of the body of the legendary Argentine football player Diego Maradona, who died on November 25 from a heart attack, have become known.
According to the publication Clarin, the cause of the death of the football player was acute pulmonary edema, which was caused by an exacerbation of chronic heart failure. Pathologists also spoke about dilated cardiomyopathy, a pathology that provoked an increase in the heart chambers. That is, Maradona’s heart was twice the norm.
Earlier, the Argentine prosecutor’s office opened a case on the death of Maradona for two alleged crimes due to the abandonment of an athlete without supervision and criminal negligence.
It is noted that analyzes were taken for a chemical and toxicological examination. The San Martin police will be looking for traces of alcohol and drugs.
