Woman died after zebra collision
Wednesday 17 June 2009
A pensioner died after a "collision" with a zebra while on holiday in Africa, a coroner said today.
Eileen Whale, 77, of Ipswich, was in Kenya with husband Charles late last year when the incident occurred, said coroner Peter Dean.
She died in hospital in Ipswich in February after returning home.
An inquest was due to take place today to examine the circumstances around Mrs Whale's death.
But Dr Dean adjourned the hearing to a date to be fixed, saying further inquiries needed to take place.
He said the hearing was adjourned following discussions with Mrs Whale's relatives.
Dr Dean said the cause of death given when Mrs Whale's inquest was opened earlier this year was pancreatitis.
It is understood that doctors will try to establish any links between injuries caused as a result of the zebra collision and her death.
