A groom was left devastated after finding his twin brother dead while celebrating his bachelor party.

Gary Edwards, 28, of the United Kingdom, traveled to Poland, to celebrate the upcoming wedding of his twin brother Rob.

Gary, Rob, and 15 of their friends, spent the day playing football on the beach in Sopot, before going for a meal and drinks at a bar.

The men went back to the rented apartment at around 11:00 p.m.

The next morning, when Gary did not get out of bed, they went to check on him, and found him dead in bed. The men tried to revive him with CPR, but it was too late.

Rob had the heartbreaking task of telling his parents about his twin brother’s death. His family was waiting for an autopsy to learn the cause of Gary’s sudden death.

However, they did not get the closure they were looking for, as the autopsy was inconclusive.

The autopsy revealed that Gary had been drinking a lot of alcohol as he had almost four times the legal limit.

However, Senior coroner Tony Williams said: “This is not a huge amount. It's certainly not enough to have caused toxicity or to be the cause of his death.”

He also said that there were no traces of illegal drugs or prescription drugs in his system.
