An autopsy released on Saturday shows that late Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez was under the influence of cocaine and alcohol when he died in a fatal boat crash last month, reports ABC 10.
An autopsy of one of the other young men, Eduardo Rivero, on the boat also revealed that he was under the influence of cocaine and alcohol. The third young man, Emilio Macias, had alcohol in his system, but no cocaine.
The full toxicology report tested for many different substances.
The report also shows that the men suffered blunt force injuries to their heads and torsos. Macias also suffered blunt force injuries of the extremities.
The three men were at a restaurant called the American Social Bar & Kitchen in the Brickell area before riding in the pitcher's SeaVee when it rammed into a jetty off the coast of Miami Beach.
No, he didn't make great decisions, but in no way should this news tarnish Jose Fernandez's legacy. He was an amazing guy.— Alex Nagel (@alexnagel51) October 29, 2016
Many on Twitter argue these facts shouldn't tarnish Fernandez's memory.
