BIOGRAPHY AND WIKIPEDIA: Alexander Pisarev's wife survives after eating poisoned watermelon

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Alexander Pisarev's wife has survived after eating poisoned watermelon.

An unnamed teammate from Pisarev's Tomahawk team told Russia's state-run news agency Tass that Pisarev died in his sleep, and that he didn't have any chronic health issues.

"According to preliminary data, death was the result of food poisoning," the source from Pisarev's team said.

"My brother, my friend, my student! Words cannot express the extent of the loss. Alexander Pisarev is the standard of friendship, decency and courage of a Russian person. I and we will miss you!!! Rest in peace our brother," the team's statement said.

Tass' source said that the athlete's wife has also been hospitalized due to health problems.

Pisarev's father, Igor Vladimirovich, reportedly told the SHOT Telegram channel that he lived in an apartment in Moscow, with his son and his wife, and that he found Pisarev unconscious at around 4 p.m. local time on Sunday after returning home from a walk with their dog.

Pisarev's relatives told SHOT that he was completely healthy, with no chronic illnesses.

"There were finger fractures after previous fights, but this is nothing. We all eat the same food, we live together," Pisarev's father reportedly said.

Several media outlets, including Pravda, suggest that Pisarev passed away after eating a watermelon along with his wife, who is understood to have been hospitalised, although they also ate other products.

Igor Vladimirovich, the fighter's father, returned to his apartment after walking the family's dog to find that he was no longer breathing.

'I looked into the room — Alexander and his wife were sleeping,' Vladimirovich is quoted as saying by Pravda. 'I came closer and then realised that my son was no longer breathing.

'There were fractures of the fingers after the last fights, but this is nothing. We all eat the same food, we live together.'

Melons do not naturally contain bacteria which can make you sick, however their outer skin can sometimes become contaminated as they are grown close to the ground.

They can also become contaminated during and after harvest from handling, storing and transporting. 

A recent Salmonella outbreak in Norway, which left 20 people ill, was believed to be caused by watermelons, while similar cases in the UK earlier this year were linked to honeydew, cantaloupe and galia melons originating from Costa Rica or Honduras.

Relatives of Pisarev insist he was in good health and obtained no chronic diseases.

An autopsy will determine the cause of his death, with the Moscow Region Investigative Committee saying: 'In Balashikha, an investigation was organized into the death of an athlete as a result of poisoning.

Investigators, with the participation of a forensic specialist, are conducting an additional inspection of the scene, confiscating items relevant to the investigation, and planning a forensic chemical examination.'

Pisarev, a former Moscow champion in hand-to-hand combat and grappling, reached the final of the MMA European Championships and fought under promotional banners such as Absolute Championship Berkut and Fight Nights Global.

Russian officials have since launched an investigation into the cause of Pisarev’s death.

“In Balashikha, an investigation was organized into the death of an athlete as a result of poisoning,” the Moscow Region Investigative Committee said in a statement. “Investigators, with the participation of a forensic specialist, are conducting an additional inspection of the scene, confiscating items relevant to the investigation, and planning a forensic chemical examination.”

Pisarev’s Tomahawk team later confirmed the athlete’s death in a statement, but did not list a cause or give any further details.
