Australian Cricketer Phillip Hughes Dies Two Days After He Was Hit By Cricket Ball


So sad to hear that this guy finally died. Been following his progress since yesterday.

Australian Cricketer, Philip Hughes has died two days after a ball hit him in the neck during a match between his team and South wales at the Sydney Cricket Ground on 25 November 2014.

Though he was wearing a helmet at the time of the freak accident, Philip collapsed and was rushed to St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney where he underwent surgery and was placed into an induced coma. He died this morning from his injuries. He was 25 years old. May his soul rest in peace, amen.

Doctors said his injury was a rare vertebral artery dissection which led to subarachnoid haemorrhage, which is bleeding in the brain. See pics taken immediately after he fell.


Hughes was struck in the neck by a bouncer from New South Wales bowler, Sean Abbott.
