Policeman suspended after Morosini death
MILAN (AP) -The policeman responsible for the delay of an ambulance reaching stricken Livorno player Piermario Morosini has been automatically suspended Monday pending an internal investigation.
The 25-year-old Morosini, who was on loan from Serie A side Udinese, collapsed and died after suffering a cardiac arrest during a Serie B match at Pescara on Saturday.
A traffic police car blocked the ambulance's way into the stadium, creating the delay. A window had to be broken so the car could be moved, while players and officials were frantically gesturing for the ambulance to get there.
Pescara's mayor said a disciplinary sentence of a minimum of 11 days and a maximum of six months will be imposed on May 7.
