Passers-by performed CPR at a park in Salford, Gtr Manchester.
Arsenal fan Petro was rushed to hospital, where he had two ops to relieve pressure on his brain.
Despite battling to save him, Petro passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest – believed to have been caused by a burst blood vessel.
Petro’s family held a memorial service on June 29 and said “everyone was welcome” to join and release balloons in his memory.
They were amazed when the young United starlet Gomes, 18, turned up unannounced to pay his respects and make a donation.
