Drama in horse racing: Merano jockey has an accident

The Merano jockey Dominik Pastuszka fell badly during a horse race in Pisa on Thursday. There is hardly any hope for him.

The 36-year-old Pole, who has lived in Merano for a long time, fell with his horse War Brave during a hurdle race at the San Rossore racecourse.

He had suffered severe head and chest injuries. The horse died on the racetrack. Pastuszka underwent emergency surgery, but his condition is considered hopeless, according to media reports.
