Sources from the Comunidad de Madrid 112 Emergency Department confirmed that a 12-year-old boy died this Saturday, October 22. He had been taking part in a football match at the Principe de Asturias municipal sports centre in the Madrid town of Pinto when he allegedly suffered a severe asthma attack.
Summa 112 doctors were quickly on the scene and they continued with these resuscitation techniques for more than an hour without success. The boy was eventually pronounced dead by the medics.
According to police sources, the deceased had participated with his team in a league match. At the time he suffered the asthma attack, the game had already finished.
The Pinto city council subsequently decided to suspend all the matches of the municipal football and basketball leagues that were going to be held this Saturday, as reported by 20minutos.es.
