Rico, 78, was taken to the Hospital Metropolitano (private hospital) by Doña Laura (54), where she stood by the “first husband” as they took x-rays and ruled out any major injurty.

This was all confirmed by the Casa Presidencial, as the minister of Communications, Carlos Roverssi, explained that José María had been admitted to the medical centre, but released in less than a day.
