Father Of Footballer Emiliano Sala Dies Three Months After Son’s Death In A Plane Crash

The father of Emiliano Sala, late Argentine footballer, has died three months after the death of his son in a plane crash, the local mayor has said.

The father of the late footballer died at age 58 after he had a heart attack.

“Horacio’s wife called me at five o’clock in the morning (8am Irish time). The doctors were already there, he never managed to get over the death of Emi,” Progreso mayor Julio Mueller said.

The world, on the 21 January was greeted with the news that the light aircraft carrying Emiliano Sala from Nantes to his new club disappeared near the British island of Guernsey.

Station Magazine understands that Sala’s body was recovered from sea but the pilot, David Ibbotson, is still missing.

An inquest has since found that Sala died of “head and trunk injuries”.

In a statement following Emiliano’s death, the family said in a statement: “We can now begin to mourn our son and our brother. We would like to thank you all for your signs of affection and support in the most painful time of our life.

“To see everyone doing everything possible to join us in the search has been a precious help to us.”

Sala’s plane’s mishap sparked an outpouring of grief and a flood of cash to support a private hunt for the plane when the official search was initially called off.
