New Delhi: The tragic death of Andrew Symonds stunned the cricket world. The 46-year-old all-rounder died on the scene after his automobile ran off the road in Queensland, Australia. The police stated they were investigating, but one thing was certain: Symonds was no longer alive. Meanwhile, facts of the deadly vehicle crash are now being revealed, with one of the witnesses spilling the beans.
The cricketer had no pulse and was accompanied by both of his dogs, both of which survived, one of which was unwilling to leave his lifeless body.
Both the dogs managed to survive the car crash and one of them refused to leave his master’s side even after his death. The witness revealed her partner tried to revive Symonds but the cricketer had no pulse.
“When we got there we could see a car upside down with a man in it. One of them (dog) was very sensitive and didn’t want to leave him. It would just growl at you every time we tried to move him or go near him,” the witness was quoted as saying by Australia’s Courier-Mail.
Tributes have been pouring in from all corners for Symonds, who is one of the most successful cricketers to have played for Australia. He was part of Australia’s two World Cup-winning teams in 2003 and 2007 and played an instrumental role in the Aussies’ dominance in world cricket under former captain Ricky Ponting.
