How did Vicente Fernandez die?
the health of “The Charro of Huentitan” began to deteriorate in August last year. While at home, at Rancho Los Tres Potrillos (located in Tlajomulco de Zúñiga, state of Jalisco, Mexico), he suffered a fall from his height, which is why he was transferred to Hospital 2000 in the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco, and underwent surgery for a cervical injury.
A few days later, when Don Chente was recovering from the operation, after some studies, the doctors who treated him diagnosed him with Guillain-Barré Syndrome, a condition in which the immune system attacks the nerves. This caused other health problems, and he remained in the hospital for more than four months.
