Hector ‘Macho’ Camacho’s condition worsens, on life support after heart attack
Chances for his recovery are now said to be slim. The the other man in the vehicle involved in a car-to-car shooting died.
Doctor Ernesto Torres, the Medical Center’s Director said on Wednesday morning that Camacho’s chances of survival were slim. But explained that doctors can keep him alive with the help of a respiration machine for the next few days to see if the 50-year-old boxer eventually responds to treatment.
Torres said that a bullet aimed at Camacho’s face, was deflected by his jaw, and made it’s way to the top of the boxer’s spinal chord, which means that if Camacho survives he could have trouble walking, or may even be paralyzed.
