Wrestling star dies during London performance
LONDON 12 May (ANA) - A World Championship Wrestling star has died in front of hundreds of fans after collapsing during a match in London on Saturday night.
Mexican national Cesar Gonzalez Barron, also known as Silver King, was fighting against Warrior Youth in The Greatest Show of Lucha Libre at the Roundhouse in Camden, London, when he died.
Lucha libre, or freestyle wrestling, is the term used in Mexico for professional wrestling. It is characterised by wrestlers wearing colourful masks and elaborate costumes while facing each other in choreographed battles.
The crowd and other wrestlers believed it was part of the show until people raced into the ring to his aid after he collapsed.
"They were wrestling and then something just seemed to go wrong," a witness told The Sun.
"As they were wrestling it stopped and they seemed like they weren't in sync at all, and the other wrestler started performing CPR," the witness said.
"It was scary, they evacuated everyone but there didn't seem to be an ambulance arrive for at least 20 minutes."
The Round said there had been an "incident" at the show but the venue was unable to comment further.(ANA)
