Fatebenefratelli Hospital in Milan (Ansa)


November 28, 2020The man found dead this morning in front of the Fatebenefratelli hospital in Milan, in via Castelfidardo, would have been hit by a car and abandoned on the spot.

This is the most accredited hypothesis by the police who initially thought it could be a beating.   

The man has broken legs, injuries compatible with the impact of a vehicle that went at high speed.

The victim is a well-known homeless man in the area and, albeit without documents, he was also recognized by police officers, since the police station is in the same area.

He was about 70 and slept right there in front of the hospital, where he was found in a shelter with blankets and cardboard.

It is therefore possible that the man dragged himself to his refuge after the impact. 

In consideration of the probable speed of the vehicle, it is not excluded that the accident may have occurred along the Porta Nuova ramparts, on the main artery.   

In any case, the autopsy will clarify the causes of death.In the meantime, the police are collecting images of the cameras in the area, well covered by electronic eyes also by virtue of the access to area C. The feeling is that the alleged hijacker may be identified shortly.
