A retired photographer bled to death at home after accidentally cutting himself on a broken wine glass when taking out the rubbish.
John Fozard tried to staunch the blood when the glass tore through the polythene bin bag and left a four-centimetre wound on his thigh before collapsing in the bathroom.
The 66-year-old left pools of blood around the house and smeared up the walls as he desperately attempted to stem the flow from the severed artery just above his knee.
A horrible accident, but you can see just how fragile human life can be, and how minor a lethal wound can be. But of course only “Gun Death” should count, right?
