Lucha Libre Legend La Parka Passes Away
AAA star and lucha libre legend La Parka (real name Jesus Alfonso Huerta Escoboza) has died at the age of 54. He was seriously injured in a match in November of 2019 and he was unable to recover. It is important to mention that this isn’t the same wrestler that portrayed La Parka in WCW, this is about the AAA star.
His injuries originally came from a suicide dive during a match in October. During the match, he went head first into the bottom of a guardrail, which required immediate surgery. The surgery treated a neck and cervical fracture, along with a repair to a fractured vertebra. Parka had renal failure on January 10 and was put back on assisted breathing, but then suffered lung and kidney failure on January 11.
