Tragedy! Small cricket ball kills professional players | Phillip Hughes has died

It actually sounds like a story that a Hollywood screenwriter with a penchant for special drama has come up: An Australian professional player in cricket, a member of the national team even gets the small, but very hard-coated leather game ball during a game at the head popped - and dies a few days after the accident because of this injury. Unfortunately, this is actually happening, and that the athlete Phillip Hughes. Now is a continent in turmoil: How did it just happen?



As the Sydney Morning Herald knows to report the compact ball Phillip had met with great force behind his ear. He was supposed to carry it with his bat just to the field, but it just came tragically different. An artery had been smashed in the hard impact in Phillips head, the player broke after a few moments on the spot together. As if that were not enough misfortune would have happened already alerted the ambulance took a full quarter of an hour to arrive at the stadium - in Australia is on average just over half the time usual.

After Phillip now for two days could be kept alive still and had even been transferred to the artificial coma, he now has succumbed to the effects of this tragedy. But pain, he should not have felt it.
