Ex-champ Hector Camacho dies at 50
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) The mother of Hector ``Macho'' Camacho says she decided to have doctors cut off life support for the former world champion boxer Saturday once three more of his sons got a last chance to see him.
Camacho died at the age of 50 after being shot in the face earlier in the week.
Though opposed by Camacho's eldest son, Maria Matias, the boxer's mother, said she had decided it was time for doctors to disconnect the machines that have kept him alive.
``I lost my son three days ago. He's alive only because of a machine,'' Matias had said before doctors cut off life support on Saturday.
