PR newspaper said they already did an EEG to determine brain activity, results showed 3% on Glascow scale (coma scale), they will be performing 2 more to determine brain death (protocol). Theres talk about possible organ donation .

His organs are to be donated. Very sad. May he rest in peace. My heart goes out to his family and friends and all who loved him.

Just because a terrible incident occurs doesn't mean that the entire island of Puerto Rico is corrupt and like that. What is wrong is wrong no matter what demons he had in his past and overall the man was a great boxer

All due respect but Camacho always love to live life on the edge, so maybe now he can do something right for a change and donate a few organs to somebody who's worthy of living.........................

Hector is not hanging in there. He died yesterday. Family has to fly in, arrangements need to be made, and a statement will be made. Until then they will keep releasing different stories in the media. He died yesterday tho.

Why do you think ESPN and other media say "shot in brain" then "no it was jaw not brain" then "life support " then "he's expected to live according to doctors". The family is gathering and flying in and a consensus needs to be made on a public statement.

Emmanuel stewards family did the same thing. They were denying he was dead two days after he died. This is what they do. I guarantee you that Hector is gone. Trust me on this. I'm not happy to bring bad news. I'm just giving you facts.
