Journalist Mile Carpenisan dies at 34

War-correspondent Mile Carpenisan died yesterday in the Timisoara Emergency County Hospital, where he was under treatment since last week. Doctor Gheorghe Nodici, the manager of Timisoara County Hospital, declared yesterday for Mediafax that his death came as no surprise to medics, as his condition was worsening by the day. According to medical sources, the death was the consequence of a heart attack.

Mile Carpenisan had been admitted to hospital a few days ago, when several blogs and web sites announced he was in coma following septic shock, and needed A2 positive blood.

A campaign was launched on Twitter to find blood donors. A month ago, Carpenisan ran a humanitarian campaign to support Daniel Raduta, a young man diagnosed with “lymphoblastic acute leukemia” who needed money for a marrow transplant. For over 10 years, Mile Carpenisan was a war correspondent for TV channels Antena 1 and Antena 3, with live broadcasts from many war zones. In 2008, Carpenisan ended his collaboration with the two TV channels and became a freelancer.
