Not too many years ago the famous diet doctor Dr Atkins died in very similar circumstances, just a freak slip and crack on the head. Horrible for the family when they go like that, but not a bad way to go for the deceased. Little suffering, here one minute and gone the next. Condolences to the family.

How terribly sad! He was a wonderful man and this is a great loss to the conservation movement, and, of course, a tragic loss for his family.

And how quickly and easily it can end due to a simple accident that could happen to anyone, any time, doing something quite ordinary. We need to remember this and make each moment count and not take life for granted.

^^^So true; I was just thinking of the ordinariness of this accident; just grabbing a quick smoke and tripping. What a tragedy and so shocking in its suddenness.

So sad. And scary. My mother has fallen twice in 3 months and hit her head. She is on warfarin. She's getting therapy now to help her balance. You just never know what a slip and fall can lead to.
Prayers to DOC and family

I know he hit his head, but what did he die from? A bleed?
Sad.

Camilla's brother dies in US after head injury

According to yahoo:
He went out to smoke a cigarette around 2:30 a.m. and fell backward as he tried to re-enter through a revolving door.

Phew... just a slip on the pavement and there goes a life.... My condoleances to the Shand and Cubitt families. Everyone who has done such great things for our planet's endangered species desverves a place in our heart. Thank you, Mr Shand!
