Luigi Belcuore’s wife Penny Belcuore, 36, from Morton Bagot, near Studley, speaking outside the High court in Birmingham after her pay-out had been finalised. See NTI story NTIDEAD. A man who went into hospital for routine keyhole knee surgery died on the operating table after a bungling doctor injected him with an air bubble. Family man, Luigi Belcuore died during knee surgery at the Robert Jones & Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic and District Hospital in Oswestry, Shropshire, after being injected by Professor James Richardson in October 2009. He had hoped the surgery would end the chronic pain that prevented him carrying his young daughters on his shoulders. Mr Belcuore, from the village of Morton Bagot, near Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, worked as the Northern European sales manager at the computer company Nvidia. His grief-stricken widow discovered she was pregnant just four weeks after his death and was left to give birth to the baby boy his father would never see.
