A terrible story that just broke this afternoon Australian time. Cricketer Phillip Hughes was hit in the neck on Tuesday by a cricket ball which crushed a vital artery in this neck and caused bleeding on the brain. He collapsed seconds after the injury and never regained consciousness. This kind of injury is very rare - basically a freak accident.
Thoughts and prayers are with Phillip’s family, friends, teammates and also Sean Abbott, the player who bowled the fatal ball.
