During the aforementioned show in October, La Parka, real name Jesus Alfonso Huerta Escoboza attempted a suicide dive onto RUSH but missed the maneuver and crashed head first into the barricade. La Parka was immediately taken to a hospital and underwent surgery not too long after arriving at the hospital.

While speaking with TVAzteca in October, Karis la Momia Jr., who is the son of La Parka stated that his father was in stable condition after attempting to hit the suicide dive. It is noted in the article that doctors planned to reevaluate La Parka on 10/24 and Karis la Momia Jr. sent his thank you’s to all who wished La Parka well.

La Parka was diagnosed with cervical and neck fractures. LuchaBlog added that when he suffered the injury, those close to the situation did not expect him to make it through the night but La Parka continued fighting until January 11th.

POST Wrestling would like to send our condolences to the family, friends and loved ones of Jesus Alfonso Huerta Escoboza a.k.a. La Parka.

Sad to hear about this. Way too many luchadores lost, either by accidents in matches or unusual circumstances outside if shows.

Also worth mentioning this is not the same La Parka from WCW who now wrestles as LA Park.

I was just going to ask this isn’t the chairman of WCW?

Nope, a different La Parka, who’s still been wrestling since the 90s from what I understand.
