    Liam Neeson - another head injury tragedy strikes family

    Actor Liam Neeson, whose wife Natasha Richardson died following a head injury in a ski accident, has another nightmare accident in his family.

    His 31 year-old nephew Ronan Sexton has fallen from the top of a telephone box in Brighton, UK, and is in critical condition.

    Here in Australia they keep disappearing. There was one at my shopping strip and there was always a guy asking for 50 cents to make a phone call. I haven't seen him for awhile and then I noticed the phone booth had disappeared.

    Here's a couple of battered looking red phone boxes in Brighton - with the article saying there are plans to turn them into a mini-cafe. Don't know if they have been. They'd be mini cafes indeed.

    I think Liam's nephew was probably messing about after a night out, and slipped. I hope he recovers.

    Oh no. He didn't just fall from the phone box - he fell 20ft off the promenade it was standing on as well.

    It was after a night out. I'm wondering if it had been raining and maybe the surface was slippery.

    'The nephew of film star Liam Neeson is today in hospital with a 'serious head injury' after falling 20ft from a telephone box on Brighton promenade.
    Ronan Sexton, 31, is in a 'critical condition' after enjoying a night out with friends in East Sussex.'

    ETA: That random picture I posted above of Brighton phone boxes, are the same ones the Mail is running. They may be the actual phone boxes in question. If they are, you can see the curved roofs and shiny enamel paint wouldn't make for good footholds.

    Actually, there are quite a few in areas where Amish people live.

    I see people who claim to be unable to afford anything with I-phones. I am somethimes amazed at the people that have them. Also their kids often have them.

    I make a decent living, but I just finally gave in last November and bought a new phone, but still only went with the "old" model of a Samsung Galaxy (S3) because it was free with a new contract. Up until then I was using one of those "archaic" blackberries.

    Very sad to hear this news for him. He seemed to have been genuinely devastated by the loss of his wife and that was such a strange accident. Walking around and seeming fine one minute and brain dead a few hours later. So tragic.
