EcuadorJoel Cahuasqui died at the age of 25 on April 1, after being knocked out by a dangerous kick to the head in the ring.
This tragic incident happened in a match at the Ecuadorian National Championship KickBoxing over the weekend.
In a loophole situation, Cahuasqui was hit by a high kick from his opponent and immediately fell to the ring. Although the Ecuadorian was wearing a helmet, the kick was so powerful that Cahuasqui could not stand up.
According to the newspaper El Norte, the tournament organizers did not arrange medical staff for on-site first aid, and those present took Cahuasqui to a local hospital. Here, 25-year-old boxer was diagnosed with cerebral hemorrhage and could not survive. Doctors decided to pull out the ventilator, so Cahuasqui died on April 1.
“I am sorry to announce that Joel Cahuasqui has passed away, and relatives have confirmed. This athlete has suffered a cerebral hemorrhage after a match held by the National Championship kickboxing,” Ecuadorian reporter Alberto Astudillo write on Twitter April 2.
On social media, there was a video recording the moment a athlete lost consciousness after receiving a high-altitude kick on the back of the neck. This situation is believed to have caused Cahuasqui to lose his life. However, the president of the Ecuadorian kickboxing Federation insisted that the video belonged to another match.
“We are sorry for what happened to Cahuasqui, but that video belongs to a match in another league,” said Zambrano. Expreso April 2.
