Professional wrestler Hercules Cortez, 39,  died early Saturday morning in a one car accident near St. Cloud, Minn., where he and fellow wrestler Red Bastien were returning to the Twin Cities for last night's card after a Friday card in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Cortez, who lives in North Royalton, Ohio, was driving the car and died en route to a St. Cloud hospital. Bastien, 40, of Minneapolis, was treated and releaeed and will miss about a week of wrestling.

Last night's card at the Minneapolis Auditorium went on as scheduled, with promoter Wally Karbo brining in a replacement for Cortez, whose real name is Alfonso Chicharro. Cortez was a native of Spain.

Cortez and Bastien were World Tag Team Champions.
