Hector “Macho” Camacho Brain Dead
After being shot in the face Tuesday night, the boxer has been declared brain dead.
Dr. Ernesto Torres said doctors have finished performing all medical tests on Camacho…
“We have done everything we could,” said Torres, who is the director of the Centro Medico trauma center in San Juan. “We have to tell the people of Puerto Rico and the entire world that Macho Camacho has died, he is brain dead.”
He said at a news conference that the family expects to say by Friday if Camacho should remain on life support.
Torres said Camacho’s father has already indicated that he wants the boxer taken off life support and his organs donated, but one of his sisters opposes the idea.
“This is a very difficult moment,” he said.
