    Morosini was on loan from Serie A club Udinese, and had played for multiple Italian clubs, including Bologna, Vicenza, Reggina and Padova. He had also played on Italian National youth teams at the under-17, under-18, under-19, under-20 and under-21 levels...

    Yeah I've seen it. This may not be related but even member's of professional sports athlete's families are in that type of outlook. Just really unfortunate.

    R.I.P to Piermario Morosini

    Dude suffered 3 heart attacks was DOA.

    Even if the Ambulance wasn't blocked temporarily from getting in, I doubt there was anything doctors could do.

    Still ashame the exit was blocked.
