Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez Dead at Age 58

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has passed away at the age of 58!

The controversial political leader lost his two year long battle with cancer in a military hospital in Venezuela on Tuesday (March 5).

Vice President Nicolás Maduro just announced the news and said that he was on the way to the hospital where Hugo was being treated when “we received the hardest and most tragic information that we could transmit to our people.”

Hugo had not been seen nor heard from since releasing some proof-of-life photos on February 15.
