Panamanian Boxer José Maco Arboleda Dies From Injuries Suffered In Bus Accident

Sports Section By Elizabeth Garrido A. for La Prensa - Rogelio Espiño, the manager of Panamanian boxer José Maco Arboleda, today deplored his death and said "I hope this (his death) will help to open the eyes of the authorities so that Panamanians do not continue to die useless deaths thanks to these people who consider themselves to be above the law." Espiño was present this morning at the Santo Tomas Hospital where Arboleda died at 4:00 am, according to the doctors who were attending him after he suffered an abdominal trauma affecting his liver that landed him in the intensive care unit. Arboleda is the third person to have died as a result of the fatal bus accident that occurred yesterday morning, when a bus from the Kuna Nega - Villa Cárdenas route overturned near Cerro Patacón on the road that leads towards the Centennial Bridge. Espiño said the boxer's death caused him "much anger and made him feel impotent" because he "was killed in a very unfortunate manner." Speaking to TVN Noticias on Channel 2 this morning, Espiño said that during the day today they would be making arrangements for Arboleda's funeral.

Rogelio Espiño pidió a las autoridades que sean más enérgicas con los transportistas que incumplen la ley.

10:36 a.m. - Rogelio Espiño, el apoderado de José Maco Arboleda, lamentó hoy el fallecimiento del pugilista y fue enfático al señalar que "ojalá que esto [su muerte] sirva para ver si se abren los ojos las autoridades para que no sigan falleciendo más panameños útiles por cuenta de estas personas que prefieren [estar] por encima de la ley".

Espiño se presentó esta mañana al Hospital Santo Tomás, en donde Arboleda murió a las 4:00 a.m., según los médicos que lo atendían tras sufrir un trauma abdominal cerrado [su hígado se afectó] que lo llevó a cuidados intensivos.

Arboleda es la tercera víctima fatal del accidente del autobús de la ruta Kuna Nega-Villa Cárdenas que se volcó ayer, cerca de cerro Patacón y de la vía de acceso este hacia el puente Centenario.

Espiño dijo que la muerte de Maco le daba "mucha rabia y mucha impotencia", ya que el pugilista "perdió la vida de una forma tan lamentable".

En declaraciones a Noticias AM de canal 2, Espiño adelantó que durante el día de hoy se realizarán los trámites necesarios para el sepelio de Arboleda.

very sad, what a waste, i'm in 100% agreement with Don on this one, time is way overdue for a change to the transportation system, these death traps need to get off the roads.
