Lucha Libre AAA Wrestler Jesús Alfonso Escoboza Huerta, a.k.a. La Parka, passed away at age 55, according to @luchablog.
Huerta never recovered from in-ring injuries that happened months earlier from a botched suicide dive. During a match last October, Huerta went for a suicide dive but went head first into the bottom of a guardrail.
Huerta was the second La Parka. The original wrestled in WCW and AAA in the 90s and now goes by L.A. Park. During his career, Huerta was also known as La Parka II, La Parka Jr., and Maligno. He made his Lucha Libre AAA debut in 1995. In 2018, he appeared on an episode of Impact Wrestling.
We here at Wrestling Inc. send our condolences to the family and friends of Jesus Alfonso Escoboza Huerta.
when La Parka suffered the injury, people close to the situation believed Parka would not last thru that night. He kept fighting for two more months.— luchablog (@luchablog) January 12, 2020
