Knife stuck in the leg and severed artery. Boxing talent
A normal discussion turns into tragedy a Caserta. At the expense of it is an 18-year-old, considered one of the greatest talents in boxing, fatal for him the stab in the leg, which severed the femoral artery. Gennaro Leone – we read in the Corriere della Sera – actually died in hospital at 3 am, but the rush to the emergency room only served to feed a hope that vanished definitively due to the umpteenth heart crisis caused by the violent hemorrhage, when the heart di Gennaro has stopped and no maneuver by the doctors has been able to reactivate him. He had been shot at midnight, and if he lasted three hours in a condition that in many cases has a fatal ending in just a few minutes, it is because he was so strong. A big boy who practiced boxing and who could have become a champion, because he had already entered the youth national team.
But – continues the Corriere – there is no reason to justify the dispute. A push, it seems. Or maybe a word, a comment. According to some witnesses, Gennaro Leone was alone at the time of the quarrel, there were no friends to back him up, his brother was in the area, but he was not present either. Suddenly the knife came out. Maybe those who used it went away to go and get it and then immediately came back, or maybe they already had it with them but didn’t decide to use it at first. What is certain is that a moment after appearing, the blade was already stuck in Gennaro Leone’s leg, and another moment and the attacker had already disappeared, running away towards an unavailability that really lasted the space of a morning. And when the carabinieri stopped him and took him to the barracks for questioning, he burst into tears.
