hi#

Charogat :

Hi, and thank you for coming to JustAnswer.com with your question.

Charogat :

It is quite common for any injury to the scalp to bleed profusely, as there is a huge blood supply to the scalp.

Charogat :

It is possible that the head injury contributed to the death a week later.

Charogat :

If there was some damage when the head injury occurred that caused a clot it could have become dislodged. Also, if an area of the brain was more injured than realized and became ischemic (lost blood flow) it could have been weakened.

Charogat :

I'm sorry to hear of this terrible event and hope the family finds comfort very soon.

Charogat :

G-d Bless

JACUSTOMER-jfk0fz1l- : Thank you for that! The brain was examined could,t see any clots etc!? I believe the microscopic size of the chaos that prob occured axons & neurons metabolic crisis! Saying no research in englang ! That's not good enough when my son died is it!! He obv exerted himself too soon!? His deep cut was above his eye fractured his skull!? They didn,t know this that's why he went playing football!? Had 4 stiches & rested all wk! Very healthy no internal defects could be found!? Only the fracture showed up at post mortem!? 6ft 2! Obv an electrical fault happened for him just to drop & die!? More rest if I had known about fracture and antibiotics for the deep open wound!! Any advice most helpful.
