    Tragedy Of Fall Death Dad Fleeing Police

    11:00 - 05 June 2007

    A father-of-two who died after falling from a 9ft fence as police investigated a domestic incident would have celebrated his 39th birthday yesterday.

    The man, named locally as Russell Revell, died in the early hours of Saturday at Young Crescent, Sutton-in-Ashfield.

    Floral tributes to Mr Revell have been put on lampposts in the area where he fell.

    The printer was married to Tanya and had two children, Cory and Ella-Mae. He ran from his home when the police arrived. He climbed a fence at the bottom of his garden and fell over the other side.

    A post-mortem examination showed the cause of death as head injuries.

    A Notts Police spokesman said officers had not been in active pursuit of Mr Revell. The matter had been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission, and Notts Police's Professional Standards Department is investigating, he added.

    and the moral of the story, don't run from the police.

    How is this a tragedy? He ran from the police, and died because of his own actions.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    They weren't even in active pursuit of him, so he died by his own stupidity / clumsiness.

    Thing is, I can think of a few scenarios where he didn't do anything wrong other than getting scared and believing things his wife was telling him.
