AAA’s La Parka has passed away due to injuries sustained during a match last fall. Real name Jesus Huerta Escoboza, he is the second luchador to use the La Parka name. The La Parka from WCW and now MLW is currently using the name LA Park.
Escoboza was injured during a match with Rush in Monterrey in the fall. He missed a suicide dive and hit his head on the guardrail. He was paralyzed and taken to hospital due to his injuries. Although he survived surgery after the incident, he never fully recovered and died yesterday.
Lucha Libre website, Lucha Blog, has been providing updates.
“When La Parka suffered the injury, people close to the situation believed Parka would not last thru that night. He kept fighting for two more months,” a follow-up Tweet stated.
