The Dominican musician told journalist José Antonio Aybar that after the crash he was taken to a medical center where he was medicated, but as the pain continued, he decided, this Friday, to visit another clinic, where they finally detected the rupture.
“At the clinic where they gave me first aid, they didn’t tell me that I had a fracture, they sent me home with a painkiller, but I couldn’t sleep from the pain. This morning I went to my orthopedist and to my surprise the plate they took showed me that I have a fractured right clavicle”, Familia revealed.
Due to the situation, the interpreter of “La faldita” will have to take a month without physical activity and devote his strength to the recovery process.
Finally, Familia made a call to the pertinent authorities to place a traffic light at the aforementioned intersection.
