Rosario Schiattarella, 55, died in his Marano while jogging: the moved goodbye of institutions and friends
A totally unexpected and devastating news arrived yesterday, Saturday 28 August, from Marano, in the province of Naples. The former footballer Rosario Schiattarella, aged only 55, died as a result of an illness he accused while jogging. The 118 rescuers immediately intervened on the spot, but they could not do anything to save the life of the former athlete.
55 years old, a life dedicated to football, but also to sport in general that he had never abandoned, even after hanging up his boots.
The day before yesterday, Saturday 28 August, Rosario went out on the streets of his Marano to make a jog. A habitual activity for him, who in fact loved to keep fit and perform physical activity almost daily.
Suddenly, the 55-year-old man accused a sickness and collapsed to the ground. At that moment he was walking along via San Rocco and had just passed the restaurant “La Bianchina”.
Some passersby, aware of what was happening, immediately made one emergency call to the rescue. 118 rescuers rushed to the scene aboard two ambulances. Unfortunately, however, all the first aid and resuscitation maneuvers implemented by the medical staff did not lead to the desired result. For Rosario he was no longer there nothing to do.
Also on the spot are then arrived family members of the victim. The Schiattarella family was well known and appreciated in the Marano area, precisely because of the notoriety of the late Rosario.
The heartfelt farewell Rosario Schiattarella
