                    <p>Late last month Shane del Rosario suffered a   catastrophic   cardiovascular collapse. He was found by UFC flyweight Ian   McCall, who  called 911, and administered CPR until emergency medical   personnel  arrived. Del Rosario was brought to  the  hospital in full   cardiac  arrest.</p>

He was resuscitated in the ER, and returned back to stable heart rhythm and blood pressure. He underwent an Arctic Sun procedure, raising his core temperature in hopes that his brain would activate. Unfortunately, it was not successful; del Rosario, 30, was moved onto life support and showed no brain activity.

He passed away on December 9, 2013.

On Wednesday a death certificate issued by the Orange County coroner’s office.

His death was due to natural causes, according to medical examiners.

The death certificate said the 30-year-old fighter suffered brain damage from a lack of oxygen to the brain, an abnormal heart rhythm commonly associated with heart attacks and a congenital heart disorder.

The immediate causes of death were listed as anoxic encephalopathy, ventricular fibrillation and Long QT Syndrome. But the death certificate also listed “other significant conditions contributing to death but not resulting in the underlying cause;” namely cocaine, opiates and THC were present in the fighter’s body.

O.C. Supervising Deputy Coroner Daniel Aikin told MMAjunkie that the drugs were found as part of a routine urine screen by the hospital. The amount of drugs is unknown because an autopsy wasn’t performed.

Cocaine, opiates and thc huh... Phone Post 3.0

Wow Phone Post 3.0

Damn. Phone Post 3.0

Oh wow... Phone Post 3.0

Was it really necessary for them to publish the presence of THC and Cocaine if they weren't part of the cause of death?? Seems a bit disrespectful to me, it's not like he OD'd Phone Post 3.0

Man. That sucks to hear.

Damn :/ Phone Post 3.0

JBASS - Was it really necessary for them to publish the presence of THC and Cocaine if they weren't part of the cause of death?? Seems a bit disrespectful to me, it's not like he OD'd Phone Post 3.0

Exactly...that info should be reserved for family only.

Non-natural substances in the system of a man that suffered a heart attack are significant and relevant findings. They are doing nothing differently than they would do for any public persona, tis standard procedure.

I am sad that FRB is being so reckless dropping Ian McCall's name in his tweets. I hope they get the chance to meet face-to-face.

Damn. Phone Post 3.0


WithoutSpoilersdotCom - hmmm. not that big of a deal, if it didnt cause his death
LOL. You don't think they played a factor? Phone Post 3.0

Correct me if I'm wrong, isn't mixing coke and opiates a big no-no? For the reason that one speeds up the heart and the other slows it down? R.I.P could have easily happened to me in my younger years. Phone Post 3.0

I hope the family goes after this jackass, for the title he used on the MMA "JUNK" site.. If an autopsy wasnt performed you dont have absolute SOLID proof of what was found in his system.. He could have had a Poppy seed bagel or Asian food and his urine would test positive...Lidocaine would bring a positive result for cocaine as well in some cases... also some antibiotics will do the same..

Cocaine can cause your heart to stop by inducing a massive heart attack.

I've seen a few patient die this way. Had one recently with a similar presentation.

Don't fuck with cocaine Phone Post 3.0

stop pmsing you damn frenchy :)
