The family of the Colombian goal keeping legend Miguel Calero decided to keep him alive via life support until the entire family can come to an agreement on his fate.
He confirmed that only when the entire family is gathered in Mexico will they decide whether or not to turn off Miguel’s life support system.
On November 25 Miguel was taken to the hospital to undergo an operation to relieve pressure on his brain after suffering a stroke. His health deteriorated in the ensuing days until, on December 3, he was declared brain dead by his doctors.
Another brother of the Calero family, Jhon Jairo, spoke to the Colombian based Radio Blu about Miguel before his health deteriorated saying that he “has always been friendly and an example of good life, cheerful and in good spirits.”
Jhon went on to say “I have the best memories of him. He was professional, a great father, son, brother, friend and companion. Very happy and special. The truth is that whenever we met him things were very nice because he was always in a very good mood.”
Miguel Calero is accompanied by his wife and their children aged 20 and 14 in a hospital in Mexico.
