The man who gives life to the iconic image of the university team passed out and had to be hospitalized
UCAM returned to Europe and won, but they did not go home satisfied. In the course of the match, an event occurred that froze those who witnessed it, as well as those who heard the news through word of mouth that quickly spread. The man who gave birth to Vulpi, the team’s mascot and responsible for guiding the minds of the fans during the intermissions of the UCAM matches, passed out with loss of consciousness causing the tragedy to fly over the Palacio de los Deportes.
The 34-year-old fell from dizziness on one of his breaks on the floor, in the space that gives access to the band’s pavilion opposite the benches and the match scoring table, just below the penalty area. After immediate attention from the basketball club’s medical services, the ambulance quickly transferred him to Morales Meseguer General University Hospital, where he was hospitalized until around 2 a.m. Wednesday, when he was discharged.
The person who gave birth to Vulpi has since recovered favorably and peacefully from his private residence, in the company of his family. Today, however, more extensive medical tests will be carried out, as he overcame a major medical problem about a year and a half ago and wants to know or rule out whether there is a relationship, or if it was something only against the excessive heat they produce for their residents, these costumes, very high last Tuesday evening with the feeling of humidity that prevailed in Murcia and in a palace without air conditioning, despite having already gathered in October.
For now, the rest Vulpi needs to recover from the event seems to mean he will be absent from UCAM’s game against Granada this Sunday at 12:30 p.m., which corresponds to the third day of the Endesa League.
