Horsley Hill Boxer Dies In Freak Accident

Last weekend a twenty three year old by the name of Grant Adams passed away from a freak accident. While resting on a sunbed at the Horsley Hill Amateur Boxing Club he fell into a deep sleep that he’d never awake from. Resting on the bed in the wrong manner he began to lose air in his lungs. He eventually lost all air in his lungs and passed away from suffocation. He was found a half an hour later by his coach who was looking for him as it was time for him to practice again. His coach grew angry as he wouldn’t get up, thinking that the twenty three year old was faking be asleep.

He then checked to see if there was a pulse to which the coach was shocked to see he had just touched the body of his now dead student. Sharna Gardner, the girlfriend of Grant received a check worth thirty five hundred Euro’s this weekend which was split between the Great North Air Ambulance Charity and the couples baby. The $1,750 was used towards buying the baby new clothes, diapers, new toys and various other things that the child needed.

This is the second sports related death to occur in Horsley Hills during the last two months. It has put the community in an array of distress as Grand and Karl, the other boy to pass away two months earlier were considered to be great men in the community. They stood as role models for the young children in the Horsley Hills community and they will be sorely missed.
