Ho made light of his injuries, but a few hours later felt so ill that he was conveyed to the hospital, where he died at eleven o’clock the same eveningIt was stated at the inquest that

several of his ribs were broken, and that death was doubtless due to internal hemorrhage. A perdict of accidental death, with no blame attachable to anyone, was returned.
