Audio: this was the 911 call made by Leopoldo Luque, Diego Maradona’s personal doctor

The audio of Maradona’s doctor call to 911

After the burial of the body of Diego Armando Maradona in Bella Vista, the prosecutor Laura Capra advances in the investigation to clarify the causes of death of the best soccer player of all time.

After taking a statement from the nurse Gisela, also known as “Daiana” –who assured that “she would have heard” Maradona moving in her room around 7:30 am – and the nurse who was at Tigre’s house all night was able to verify that the ambulance that attended Maradona arrived 11 minutes after the call made to 911 and not 30 as The lawyer Matías Morla denounced yesterday.

What had not yet transpired was that the person in charge of calling the emergency service had been his personal doctor, Leopoldo Luque, who at the time of death was not within the private neighborhood of San Andrés.

According to the audio published by the newspaper El Día, the telephone call to 911 lasted 47 seconds, he is calm and at no point in the conversation does he mention the patient by name and surname. It does not say that the person in need of assistance was Diego Armando Maradona.

When he had to explain the reason for the call, Luque said that “there is a person who is, apparently, with a cardiorespiratory arrest and there is a doctor treating him ”.

Then he said that it was “Of a man of approximately 60 years” the one that needed the ambulance to be transferred. Before cutting off, the operator asks for your name and answers: “Leopoldo Luque”.

This document is key to determining that it is Dr. Luque who calls the ambulance and not those who were in Maradona’s care at that delicate moment. Until this Thursday, Luque had not yet been summoned to testify.

The prosecution, according to sources of the case revealed to Infobae, he had received the version that the nurse would have seen Maradona after 8 AM and that even the idol would have refused to receive his medication. Originally, she had stated that she “let him sleep.” Thus, “Daiana”, 36, a former employee of three well-known medical centers, was summoned to testify again last night, during a working day that lasted until the early hours of the morning.

In her extension, the nurse confirmed her original version: she assured that she heard him urinate, but that she did not enter the room where Maradona was, next to the kitchen of the house.

At no time, he confirmed, did he have eye contact with Diego. At least, according to the file, the last to have seen him alive is the nurse who Gisela relieved. What happens between 7:30 and 10:45 on Wednesday is still a matter of investigation. Meanwhile, the case targets the phones of those who surrounded the idol in his death to find new clues.

Until yesterday, the investigators of the case they had found nothing to indicate abandonment of person or malpractice, something that lawyer Morla suggested in a harsh statement where he spoke of a “criminal idiocy.” The five specialists who were part of the autopsy on Diego’s body, including the prestigious doctor Mario Shiter, on behalf of Claudia Villafañe, and who had already treated Maradona in a major health crisis at the beginning of the last decade, shared their conclusions without dissent with Attorney General Broyad. They claimed not to have found anything striking, or anything that a priori would suggest a criminal situation. The skills expected in La Plata will be decisive in this regard.
