A 22-year-old law student died a hero when he was stabbed as he tried to stop his pregnant sister from being attacked.

Ramiro Romero received two fatal stab wounds to the back as he bravely chased his sister’s attackers.

Another sibling, Florencia Romero, told local media that two brothers turned up at the home where she, Ramiro, their four siblings, and their parents live.

The pair allegedly threatened the family by firing “two shots in the air”.

“Then,” said Florencia, “they started shooting at the wall of my house.”

Ramiro went after the two brothers in Quilmes, near Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Florencia recalled: “My brother confronted them, asking why they had shot at my house.

“And they started to escape on bikes, so my brother threw a bottle at the wheels to stop them.”

According to Florencia, one of the pair threw a rock at her pregnant sister.

She went on: “That’s when my brother got angry and started to chase them.

“All the way to the central square, where more of the brothers’ friends came out.

“There were about seven guys in total who came out to attack my brother and sister.

“When my brother was fighting with one of them, he fell to the ground, and they all started hitting him with sticks and throwing rocks.

“And then he was stabbed.

“My brother managed to get up, walked to a corner, where he started spitting blood until he collapsed.”

Ramiro was taken to a local hospital, but medics could only pronounce him dead from knife wounds to a lung and a kidney.

So far, a 17-year-old has been arrested in connection with the crime, as reported on Need to Know.

Investigators point to a long-standing feud between the teenager and the victim.

Ramiro was about to begin his second year of law school.

He earned his way doing odd jobs as a certified electrician and as a store cleaner.

His family is demanding that everyone involved in the attack be locked up.
