Umpire dies after being struck by cricket ball, with police saying he was ‘terrified’
The father of a British cricket cricketer died last week after being hit by a ball from a ball machine.
Barry Smith, 43, died from multiple lace바카라사이트rations to his face after being struck by a cricket ball when he was on the field on Wednesday afternoon. He is survived by his wife Karen and their two children.
Officers and emergency services rushed to the family home, near Streatham, at 8.00pm after a complaint from neighbours, witnesses and a member of the public.
Mr Smith had only just returned from the field with his wife after taking part in his first match for Nottinghamshire last week.
At 9.30pm they heard a loud bang, followed by screams from the house but were unable to find a cause of death. The inquest heard a ball went into the left side of Mr Smith’s face and that he had been “terrified”. The ball was still moving when the incident occurred.
The inquest heard the police were called to the Smiths’ home in the early hours of Sunday by a resident of the house who saw a man wearing long trousers, and a short jacket, running around the back yard and down the lane. He was carrying a cricket ball and two pieces of cardboard with the ball stuck in them. Police arrested the man at the scene and later released CCTV which showed him at the back door of the home.
Detectives later spoke to the owner of the house at 8.55pm and discovered that the 더킹카지노man in the shorts and long trousers had died and his body had been taken away for an autopsy. They are also understood to have found another body in the home, although they have yet to make an arrest in this case.
The inquest was told that Mr Smith did not die of injury but rather of “severe shock” and a “sudden drop in blood pressure”.
The inquiry heard that Mr Smith had suffered “severe nerve damage in his face and head” and had suffered facial lacerations. Police are not yet treating the incident as a murder case.
The coroner heard that it appeared that the incident had occurred in the same spot on a fie우리카지노ld that night and that he had taken out the bat and ball on his own.
After the incident Mr Smith did not attend a second match on Wednesday night, and he could not be located by members of his family for the next three days. He was taken to the Royal Nottinghamshir
