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.

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.

A minor-league pitcher lost his life in a freak accident while doing exercise.

Philadelphia Phillies minor leaguer 22-year-old Matt Imhof, was injured while in Florida, the team said.

Imhof was injured during an exercise routine after a game at Brevard County’s Space Coast Stadium, a Phillies official said.

Imhof was struck in the face while using a rubber resistance band, which was attached to a wall. The mounted base broke off the wall, and hit the young man in the face and head.

Imhof suffered severe damage to his right eye and it had to be removed.

After surgery, Imhof posted a photo of himself in the hospital on Instagram, and he wrote: “As many of you know, I had an accident. A large piece of metal hit me in the head and eye, resulting in a fractured nose, 2 fractured orbital bones, and most significantly, the loss of vision in my right eye.

“I was immediately taken to the ER, and then transferred to Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, the #1 eye hospital in the world.
That night, the doctors informed me that the damage to my eye was extreme and essentially that my eye had been crushed like a grape.

“The doctors told me that they were going to do everything possible to reconstruct it, but in all likelihood, I would never regain sight in my right eye.

“The first surgery was somewhat a success, but overall nothing had changed. After discussions with my family and my doctors, it was decided that the best chance I had to live a normal life was to have my right eye removed and have a prosthetic one put in.

“This decision was not an easy one to make, but to me it seemed like the right one, so on Tuesday afternoon, I went forward with the surgery. I'm currently still in Miami, recovering from surgery but I'm doing well.

“This has been the hardest week of my life, but I've had amazing support from my family and friends to help me get through it.”
