Doctors face Morosini questions

Three doctors are set to face a probe into alleged negligence following the death of Livorno’s Pierpaolo Morosini earlier this year.

The midfielder, owned by Udinese, collapsed and died of a heart attack during a Serie B game against Pescara.

Today, Pescara doctor Ernesto Sabatini, Manlio Porcellini of Livorno and Vito Molfese of the 118 emergency services have been told that they will face questions surrounding their actions.

A post-mortem into the 25-year-old’s death on April 14 showed that he lost his life because of a genetic heart defect.

However, the way the three men treated the player on the pitch – especially the allegation that a defibrillator was not used – will be put under the microscope.
