Gioja still with 'uncertain prognosis'
San Juan government has informed on governor José Luis Gioja’s condition who remains in the Intensive Care Unit of the Guillermo Rawson provincial hospital since Friday last week after the helicopter that was taking him to the provincial capital city crashed. The Kirchnerite leader continues to receive mechanical ventilation support with “uncertain prognosis.”
The report was signed by the chief of the hospital ICU Marta Torrado saying Gioja still requires “procedural sedation analgesia” with “normal renal function and lungs showing progressive improvement.” The governor is still on pleural drainage.
Meanwhile, Gioja’s secretary Héctor Pérez remains “stable” also with mechanical ventilation.
On Friday last week, the helicopter that was carrying José Luis Gioja and his collaborators crashed when the chopper got tangled up in power cables and fell. Victory Front lawmaker Margarita Ferrá did not survive the impact. She died at 78 years old.
