More Investigation Regarding Alexei Cherepanov Death

via RIA,

Investigators will conduct a new probe into the death last October of Russian hockey star Alexei Cherepanov, an investigative committee spokesman said on Monday.

Cherepanov, considered one of Russian hockey’s most promising stars, collapsed and later died on October 13 after playing for the Omsk Avangard club at a match in the Moscow Region. He was 19.

“The file has been returned to investigators in the Omsk Region for additional checks,” Vladimir Markin said, adding that the investigation should include another look at the player’s myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle.

Cherepanov was found to have suffered from chronic myocarditis, which meant he should not have been playing sport.

The investigators earlier said the paramedics, who arrived 12 minutes after the emergency call and had a defibrillator with a low battery, had incorrectly pronounced his “natural death.”
