The mother of an 18-year-old, who died suddenly, is demanding to know what happened and won’t stop until she gets to the bottom of it.
Lorenzo Squillace, a lifeguard at San Benedetto del Tronto, in Italy, suddenly died at a local hospital after feeling unwell Saturday.
His mother Paola, a well-known teacher in San Benedetto del Tronto, said that she wants answers and the public prosecutor’s office has now ordered an autopsy examination, which is set to be carried out in the next few days, according to EuroWeekly News.
The mother of a young 18-year-old lifeguard from Italy’s San Benedetto del Tronto has urgently requested an autopsy after her son died suddenly after feeling ill on Saturday, September 10.
According to reports on Monday, September 12, Lorenzo Squillace, who had recently celebrated his 18th birthday, said he felt ill while at home and died at a local hospital.
Local media reports suggest that Squillace, who turned 18 on August 25, was a healthy young man working as a lifeguard on the Adriatic coast.
After complaining about feeling ill, the teenager’s mother took him to A&E at the Madonna del Soccorso in San Benedetto del Tronto.
The worried woman parked outside and ran in with her son, left him with the doctors just long enough to find a parking space, as reported by bigodino.it.
However, upon her return, she found Lorenzo already intubated and dying.
The news outlet said that the doctors were so worried about the young lifeguard that they were about to arrange a transfer to the Torrette hospital in Ancona, which is a much better-equipped facility than the one in San Benedetto, but sadly the 18-year-old died suddenly before that could happen.
An autopsy has now been ordered on Lorenzo Squillace’s body.
Another Italian news outlet, fanpage.it, said that the young man was healthy and had no prior health problems.
He trained, stayed fit and healthy and is believed to have had a normal lifestyle.
His mother Paola, a teacher well known in San Benedetto del Tronto, said that she wants answers and the public prosecutor’s office has now ordered an autopsy examination, which is set to be carried out in the next few days.
Lorenzo’s sudden death, and subsequent request for an autopsy, comes after a similar situation in Vaiano, Italy, in which an autopsy was ordered after a 13-year-old girl, who was previously diagnosed with myocarditis, died suddenly.
