British Rugby Players Die From 'Breathing Difficulties'


Two British rugby players on a tour of Sri Lanka have died just a couple of days apart. Thomas Baty and Thomas Howard of Durham, England, were both admitted to the hospital... in Colombo on Sunday May 13, complaining of breathing difficulties. The pair had visited a nightclub in the capital during a tour with their team Clems Pirates RFC. Howard was just 25 years old when died, Baty was 26. "Both players and Clems Pirates hold a special place in our rugby family, and our continued support is unconditional. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the many messages of sympathy and support that have been received from our members, friends and the wider rugby family; they are very much appreciated at this difficult time." Richard Wilkinson, president of DCRFC Clems Pirates are described as a "fine example of veterans rugby," well known in Northeast England... due to "their sheer enthusiasm, terrific tours and their fundraising efforts." The club said Tuesday it will continue its planned charity work by providing kit to eight school teams in the Sri Lankan city of Galle, as a "mark of respect to the deceased." https://ift.tt/2KsFJyR http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
