SHOCK in Andalucia’s Almeria as news spread of the death of Eduardo Mena at the age of 56, who died suddenly after suffering from a short aortic vein problem.

According to local reports, Eduardo Mena, a personal trainer who trained several Spanish celebrities, was found lifeless on Wednesday, June 28 after suffering a sudden aortic vein problem which required two operations at the beginning of the week.

Eduardo Mena was a trainer at a gym in Costa del Sol’s Almeria, where he had remained for three decades. Mena also played football and competed for Balona, Sevilla Atlético, Plasencia and Poli Ejido.

Over the years, many celebrities from Spain trained with the Almeria trainer, including David Bisbal, Rosa López, David de María, and bullfighter, Juan José Padilla.

Spanish singer-songwriter David Bisbal paid tribute to the trainer via his Instagram account.

“I know that time will pass and I still won’t understand that he’s not here like every day, his laughter. Everything! God I can’t talk, I’ll just sing, I’ll sing as loud as I can so he can hear me wherever I am.”

      Anyone paying attention yet? This has become the new norm of children, teens, young athletic people dying suddenly from all sorts of heart, vein, blood clot issues. What’s changed so ‘suddenly’ to cause all this? What’s been the common denominator. I think we all know the answer.

      The UK has now recognised that Covid 19 injections (called Vaccines) has caused deaths and disability and are paying out £120,000 to each victim or bereaved family’s but only if the sole cause is through having the Covid 19 vaccines. the claims for this are swelling every day!! Srange no ill effects are reported from politicians? who purportedly also had such Vaccines and were also exempt from freedom of movement restrictions!
