Michael MasariegoThe body of sixteen year old Michael Masariego awaits a post-mortem examination after being killed at about 6:30 on Saturday morning on the Cristo Rey Road in the Cayo District. In a version of the incident, the mother Joy Johnson, says that Masariego had taken a hitchhike and was travelling in the pan of a vehicle towards Santa Elena when the vehicle he was riding in turned over.

Michael Masariego, also known as “Georgy,” loved to play football and had gone to Cristo Rey Village last Friday evening. He was heading to another game in Benque Viejo when the accident happened.
“…He loved sports, that was his aim, everything was sports, as soon as he got home [he would say] mom I want to practice and need to keep fit,” said Joy Johnson.

“He always wanted to go away, maybe get a scholarship to go to the United States and play ball there.”

Joy Johnson recommends that vehicles should not pick up kids on the road and advised that drivers should remember that while driving they will be stirring a lot of dust and the possibility remains that the driver behind will be temporarily blinded.

Michael Masariego was a first form student of Saint Ignatius High School in Santa Elena Town. Reports are that the students at the High School have become very saddened by this latest tragic accident.
