Hector Macho Camacho Not Brain-Dead; Organs Will Not Be Donated
A source has confirmed to El Nuevo Dia that the organs of Hector “Macho” Camacho will not be donated.
While specific reasons were not given, it is the policy of Lifelink,an independent non-profit organ and tissue recovery organization, not to use organs when controlled substances were found at a crime scene or place of death.
At a Wednesday afternoon press conference, Medical Center director, Ernesto Torres, said that although Hector Macho Camacho’s prognosis is not good, he is not yet diagnosed as brain-dead.
Earlier Wednesday, Rafael Rodriguez Mercado, president of the Medical Sciences Campus, told El Nuevo Dia that the former world champion was brain dead.
“It would be a miracle recovery, medically and can not do anything,” the doctor confirmed.
Doctors will further examine Camacho Thursday at 6:00 a.m. and will meet with Camacho’s family at 9:00 a.m.
Camacho’s mother flew to Puerto Rico Wednesday from the U.S. Mainland and his son, who is currently living in Kansas City, is also traveling to be in Puerto Rico and released a statement Wednesday morning.
“Thank you to everyone for their prayers, he is a good person, a great father, and it is a tragedy what has happened. The streets are very bad, the violence that we’re surrounded with is unnecessary. Let this be a lesson to today’s youth that we have to make a change in how we are living.”
