Former World Boxing Champ Hector "Macho" Camacho Shot

After being shot in Puerto Rico on Tuesday, former world boxing champion Hector "Macho" Camacho has gone into cardiac arrest Wednesday morning and is currently on life support.

"The situation with 'Macho' is very delicate," Centro Medico director Dr. Ernesto Torres told the press on Wednesday. "The prognosis is not good."

Camacho was shot in the face while sitting in a vehicle outside the Puerto Rican capital Tuesday.

"He went into cardiac arrest. The doctors were able to get his heart started again with the medicine, and we are maintaining his blood pressure and pulse stable medically right now to see whether during this morning, afternoon or evening we see a positive change," Torres said.

"We will maintain him in this way we are maintaining him medically, and we will wait to see how he responds," Torres said. "He is a strong guy. The prognosis could change if he improves. The neurosurgeons are not intervening further at this point."

The bullet entered Camacho's jaw and exited his head lodging in his right shoulder and fracturing two vertebrae.

Camacho's physical condition may help him get through this but his condition is critical at this time.
