Phillip Hughes (Cricketer) Dead at 25!

He was hit with a ball while playing in a match two days ago.

Taken from his Wikipedia page

Quote:
During a Sheffield Shield match between South Australia and New South Wales at the Sydney Cricket Ground on 25 November 2014, while batting on 63 not out, Hughes was struck in the neck by a bouncer from New South Wales bowler Sean Abbott. Hughes was wearing a helmet. He collapsed before receiving mouth to mouth resuscitation and was subsequently taken to St Vincent's Hospital, Sydney, where he underwent surgery and was placed into an induced coma. Hughes' injury was a rare vertebral artery dissection which led to subarachnoid haemorrhage.
He was in an induced coma for two days before finally dying today.

Pretty amazing!

Shit happens, if the guy was any good he wouldn't have taken his eye off the ball like he did. This is why he was often dropped from the Australian team, poor technique.

Ironically this was quite a slow bouncer about eighty odd k.
Medium-fast bowlers usually get it down about 120-130 k

Re: Phillip Hughes (Cricketer) Dead at 25!

It's insane that a seriously injury or death has to occur before they start changing protective gear. And I'm not singling out cricket. This type of shit happens in every sport.
