Phil Hughes was the young cricket player who was hit on the head with a ball in a game. He died from a massive brain haemorrage.

For those who don't know much about Cricket, it's played with a springy pitch and a springy bat and the ball is hard!

Imagine a 3" piece of rock coming at you at 140Kmph, when it hits it's going to hurt awhile!

The ball hit him just below his helmet on the upper neck and ruptured the Carotid Artery.

My condolences to his family.

Tim.

Closest thing to Cricket is Baseball we have.

What a tragic freak accident.

It's been all over the international news, even in non-speaking countries and where they don't play cricket.


Very sad but my concern is on Abbott who will have to cope with this tragedy his whole life.
RIP Hughes and may Abbott forgive himself ♥

It was headline news here... such a freak accident and a tragic way to go. I hope he didn't remember much about it... just doing what he loved and then quickly moving on into the light.

So sad, it just shows that yes these freak accidents can happen however safe they make sports.

Cricket is of course very popular here, and there has been a lot of coverage of this story.
