A young man was looking forward to the birth of his daughter, but he died before she was born.
17-year-old Grant Adams of England, died after stumbling and falling onto a sunbed in his home.
Adams died in a hospital after the freak accident in which a broken tube cut his neck in two places at his home in South Shields, Tyne and Wear.
His mother, Amanda Smedley, 39, described how she found her son – whose girlfriend is due to have his baby in a couple of weeks – at the bottom of the stairs bleeding.
Paramedics arrived at the house and the teen was taken to the hospital where he was placed in an induced coma. Despite doctors working on him in the operating room for five hours, Adams could not be saved and was pronounced later that night.
His mother said that Adams was two weeks shy of his 18th birthday. He had recently bought a car so that he can take care of his family.
Adams’ 16-year-old girlfriend, Shauna Gardner, is deviated by the news. She is about seven months pregnant with his little girl.
Garnder said that her boyfriend was very much looking forward to be a father and that he worked hard to earn a living so he can take care of his baby when she is born.
