Bob Woolmer, the legendary cricket coach who died a bitter man in Jamaica on Sunday, might not have committed// suicide.
A British newspaper reports that 'accidental drug and alcohol overdose' coupled with stress might have caused his sudden death.
The 58-year-old coach was declared brought dead to hospital, little over an hour after he was found unconscious in his hotel room.
Nasim Ashraf, Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman, has revealed that Woolmer was not only a diabetic but also had breathing difficulties.
It was a rare condition in fact. He was prone to stop breathing when sleeping. Hence he had to go to bed wearing a mask.
He was under severe pressure after Pakistan unexpectedly crashed out of the World Cup. It had suffered successive defeats at the hands of hosts West Indies and debutants Ireland.
The British tabloid Mirror said that the police in Jamaica were investigating whether any overdose of alcohol and drug had caused Woolmer’s sudden death.
The Jamaican Constabulary Force said in a press release that a team of police and medical personnel was conducting preliminary investigations at both the hotel and the hospital. 'The cause of death has not yet been established but will be determined after a post mortem examination is conducted,' it clarified.
But other reports say that Woolmer probably died of cardiac arrest.
Meanwhile his grieving family has blamed stress for his shocking death. They said his job of coaching Pakistan had been incredibly stressful.
At the post-match press conference on Saturday, after Pakistan lost to Ireland, Woolmer had commented, 'It takes a toll on you. You are away from the family, always traveling and living out of the suitcase.'Page: 1 Related medicine news :1
