But Red Cross workers were unable to revive him after racing to his aid and discovering he had no pulse.
The AWOL player, who reportedly fled the scene in a pick-up truck amid chaotic scenes as the ref was receiving medical attention, was named locally as Ruben Rivera Vazquez.
The Mexican official, whose body was covered with a small blue tarpaulin which left his feet and part of his right leg exposed until a judge arrived and let undertakers remove him, was named as Victor Trejo.
The shocking incident occurred on Sunday morning at around 10.30am local time at a pitch called “Amigos del Balon” – Spanish for “Friends of the Ball” in Tulancingo in the Mexican state of Hidalgo.
The player blamed for the ref’s death was representing a Sunday league side called Canarios-Roja Gomez.
He reportedly lost his temper after being red-carded for protesting a foul.
He was still believed to be on the run today.
