Inquest: Man dies of haemorrhage while visiting family in Wycombe
A MAN who was found soaked in blood while visiting family died of a haemorrhage, an inquest heard this week.
David Nolan was discovered by relatives at a house in High Wycombe with his clothes and face covered in blood and was rushed to hospital.
Doctors tried to resuscitate him but he did not respond, and was pronounced dead on June 15.
The 48-year-old lived on a caravan site in Middlesex and had been on a visit to family members in Wycombe.
Buckinghamshire Coroner Richard Hulett heard that Mr Nolan had cirrhosis of the liver consistent with excessive alcohol consumption over time.
And pathologist Dr Vidhi Bhargava, who carried out a post mortem, confirmed he had suffered a massive gastrointestinal haemorrhage which caused the bleeding.
Mr Hulett recorded a verdict of death by natural causes brought about by the haemorrhage, with hypertensive and ischemic heart disease a secondary cause.
He said: “His death amounts to one of natural causes, albeit one that in many ways was self inflicted.”
