I read that he had a heart attack while jogging, didnt know he passed away.
He was reanimated by a guy who heard some screaming and went to investigate. The guy had previous paramedic experience, and got his heart going before the cops and ambulance showed up, but it is unknown how long his heart was stopped.

Reports say he had damage to all organs and brain, so I guess it was stopped for quite a while.

He was an avid runner, and was planning to do the New York marathon.

He was well liked across all parties.

He was only 62.

Re: RIP Marco Borradori.

Funeral will be at the soccer stadium on Tuesday, the only place large enough!

Re: RIP Marco Borradori.

Avoid Lugano on Tuesday, it's going to be the biggest funeral in Swiss history!

(It's being held at the soccer stadium)

Re: RIP Marco Borradori.

Is it just me, or has there been a lot of press coverage on his death, and on saying how popular he was, but in contrast to other politicians who make it to the news in this way, his party (Lega) is generally not mentioned up front?

Because Lega politicians are not supposed to be popular?

Re: RIP Marco Borradori.

I'm a bit late to this as I've been laid up with fever for a few days after having the ((J&J) vaccine!

He was a really great person and i knew him and his brother personally. My wife is good friends with the family He was one of the few politicians who was actually liked and respected and he did some good things for Lugano.
