Witness found no Pulse on Andrew Symonds
“One of them was pretty sensitive and didn’t want to leave him,” she told Australia’s Courier Mail. “Whenever we tried to move him or approach him, it simply growled at us.”
She went on to explain that her partner attempted to save Symonds but was unable to do so due to his lack of a pulse.
“My boyfriend tried to take (Symonds) out of the car and lay him on his back. “He was comatose, not responsive, and had no pulse,” the witness said.
There was no sign that alcohol was involved, according to an inspector, and neighbors were present when paramedics arrived.
