FOOTBALL: T&T player fighting for life loses leg
Trinidad and Tobago defender Akeem Adams has lost his left leg following a fourth operation as he continues to fight for his life in a hospital in Hungary.
The 22-year-old Adams, suffered a massive heart attack last month and was fitted with a mechanical heart while awaiting a heart transplant.
However his condition was said to have worsened because of necrosis in the limb as a resulted of his artificial heart not efficiently getting blood to his extremities.
Adams was fitted with the mechanical device just under a week ago to stabilise his life.
But, he has not since stabilised sufficiently to undergo a further heart surgery.
The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association launched a fund last week to assist Adams who remains in the Intensive Care Unit of the Városmajori Heart Clinic in Hungary.
