Matias Morla, the agent and lawyer for late football legend Diego Maradona, has called for an investigation into his death, alleging ambulances took longer than half an hour to arrive at Maradona’s house on Wednesday, November 25, after the Argentine legend suffered cardiac arrest.
Maradona, 60, died of a heart attack on Wednesday at his private home outside Buenos Aires and six ambulances reportedly responded to his residence.
But according to Morla, all the ambulances took more than 30 minutes.
Posting on Twitter in a Spanish written statement, Morla called the delay by emergeny services “criminal idiocy” .
Maradona was staying at his house two weeks after undergoing brain surgery, and battled several health and substance abuse problems after his playing career.
