Of all the risks that a child can run in the garden at home, no one can imagine that one of them is being attacked by a wild animal. Nor did Raquel del Rosario, vocalist of the now-defunct musical group El Sueno de Morfeo, think of it either, but on August 26 she experienced first-hand one of the worst moments of her life when she witnessed how a puma pounced on her son Mael, five years old. The event was about to end the child’s life if it were not because, in just a few seconds and as she herself has narrated in her Instagram profile, Del Rosario crossed the garden of the family residence in California (USA) and he hit the animal with his fists until he managed to get it off him.
Although weeks have passed since the event occurred, it has not been until now that the singer – who moved to Los Angeles years ago with her husband, the Galician filmmaker Pedro Castro – has made it known. Through two publications on his Instagram account, in which he has 212,000 followers, Del Rosario has related how unexpectedly, when his son went to pick fruit from one of the trees in the garden, a puma attacked him, causing him multiple injuries. , as you can see in one of the images he has shared.
In it, Mael’s back appears full of scissors as a result of the animal’s clawing. “My heart completely broke when I saw him come out of surgery. All the strength that had invaded me that morning disappeared, leaving me completely defenseless in the face of pain that I was completely unaware of. Fear invaded me ”, confessed the Canarian vocalist, to later confess why she had not told it until now. “These weeks we have been going through that pain, feeling and accepting it, without running away from it,” he said.
Despite the fact that the doctors even told them that Mael had been saved by just a few millimeters, the couple’s second son is in perfect condition. The little animal lover is portrayed with a dog in a second post, in which his mother continues the story, explaining that the cougar, which later hid in the garden, had to be finally euthanized. by decision of the authorities and that he will not forget the crossing of glances with the mother of the animal, who came to meet him. “From the window I watched as the other cougar that turned out to be his brother returned to the garden accompanied by his mother. She positioned herself next to the lifeless body of her son and we exchanged a look of pain that I will never forget (you cannot imagine the dreams I have had with her) ”, she says. The publication has garnered countless supportive reactions, including those of some well-known characters such as Eva González, Roy Galán, Helen Lindes, Sara Carbonero and even her former husband, Fernando Alonso.
In 2006 Raquel del Rosario began a media relationship with the Formula 1 driver that ended in a wedding. The marriage, which ended up breaking up in 2011, would not be the only one for the singer, who returned to say “yes, I want” to Pedro Castro two years later. Their union not only meant a change of life for del Rosario, who moved to live in California with his partner, but also put an end to the journey of Morfeo’s dream as a group, after its passage through Eurovision in 2013 , in which it was one of his last performances. Since then, she has lived away from the media exposure to which she was used to in Spain and connected with nature, as she reveals in her multiple publications on social networks, where she can be seen doing yoga on the beach at sunset or celebrating the change of season. .
