Attorney: G-20 Protest Death Caused by Hemorrhage, Not Heart Attack

The attorney representing the family of a man who died during the riots before Group of 20 summit says he suffered from an abdominal hemorrhage — not a heart attack.

Jules Carey of the law firm Tuckers says a second autopsy was conducted on Ian Tomlinson after videotape emerged showing the news vendor being shoved to the ground by police. The first autopsy had said he suffered from a heart attack.

Carey said Friday that the findings of Dr. Nat Cary increase the possibility that the officer implicated in the incident could face a charge of manslaughter.

The 47-year-old Tomlinson collapsed minutes after his encounter with police.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission is examining the circumstances surrounding his death.
