Autopsy ordered after healthy 18-year-old lifeguard dies suddenly in Le Marche’s San Benedetto del Tronto.
Following the death of her 18-year-old lifeguard son, a mother urgently requested an autopsy. He died suddenly after feeling ill on Saturday, September 10.
Local media reports suggest that Squillace, who turned 18 on August 25, was a healthy young man working as a lifeguard on the Adriatic coast. According to reports, Lorenzo Squillace, who had recently celebrated his 18th birthday, said he felt ill while at home. He died at a local hospital.
Rushed to hospital
The teenager’s mother took him to A&E at the Madonna del Soccorso in San Benedetto del Tronto. She ran inside with her son, left him with doctors whilst she parked the car. On her return, she found Lorenzo already intubated and dying.
His mother Paola is a teacher in San Benedetto del Tronto. She wants answers and the public prosecutor’s office has now ordered an autopsy examination.
Following the news of Squillace’s death, the Riviera delle Palme National Lifesaving Society wrote on social media: “It was great to have a lifeguard like you in our team.
“Your politeness, kindness, helpfulness and the great commitment you showed in your work will always remain a beautiful memory and example for everyone. Watch over your family from heaven, you will also be a great lifeguard from up there.”
