The mother of a recently deceased 18-year-old man won’t stop until she gets to the bottom of what happened.

His mother, Paola, a teacher, drove Lorenzo to the hospital after he complained of feeling unwell, according to Bigodino.it

By the time she returned to her son, everything had changed.
According to the news outlet, Paola returned to the emergency room find her son “already intubated and dying.”
Doctors prepared to rush the young man to a hospital better equipped to deal with his deteriorating condition.

“Hi Lorenzo, It was great having a lifeguard like you on our team. Your politeness, kindness, availability and the great commitment shown in your work will always remain a beautiful memory and an example for all. Watch over your family from heaven, you’ll be a great lifeguard even from up there,” the group wrote, according to a translation.
