David Ortiz Shot In Dominican Republic
Things went WAY left for “Big Papi” David Ortiz while he was partying with family and friends at a nightclub in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic Sunday night. Police say Ortiz was ambushed by 25-year-old Eddy Feliz Garcia who jumped off a motorcycle and shot him at point-blank range.
According to ESPN, the former Boston Red Sox slugger’s assistant Leo Lopez says that Ortiz is out of surgery and in stable condition, but he’s still in intensive care recovering.
Lopez, a veteran reporter, said the operation lasted six hours and was performed by three doctors, led by Dr. Abel Gonzalez. The team had to remove part of Ortiz’s intestines and colon, as well as his gallbladder. Ortiz suffered liver damage.
“Doctors say that David is out of danger, thank God,” Ortiz’s father Leo Ortiz told ESPN. “What they have told me post op is that the doctors believe he will recover quickly.”
Leo Ortiz added: “Big Papi will be around for a long time.”
Dios lo bendiga.
One of Ortiz’s best friends, legendary pitcher Pedro Martinez, took to Twitter to wish him well.
For those who were unaware, David Ortiz is a GOD in D.R. and the citizens were NOT here for his harm.
