The Associated Press is reporting that an investigation into possible manslaughter is underway in regards to the death of El Hijo del Perro Aguayo (whose real name was Pedro Aguayo Ramírez).
As we reported here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com, Aguayo Jr. died early Saturday morning due to injuries sustained in a match at a show in Tijuana, Mexico. The spot in question involved Rey Mysterio as the bout saw Mysterio tag with Xtreme Tiger to face Aguayo Jr. & Manik.
While the match continued for almost two minutes after Aguayo Jr. was injured, he began getting treatment immediately. The doctor in charge wasn’t at ringside because he was treating another injured wrestler. However, paramedics and a doctor who was a spectator attended to Aguayo.
Aguayo was transported to Hospital del Prado where he was later pronounced dead. The cause of death, based on an autopsy, was trauma to the neck and a cervical fracture.
Mysterio commented on Saturday afternoon.
