Authorities await coroner’s report after man died of suspicious injuries

    The Tongan authorities are awaiting results of an autopsy on the body of a 74-year-old Longolongo man who died in Vaiola hospital shortly after he was admitted with suspicious injuries.

    The man was taken by an ambulance and arrived at the emergency department at 9.30pm. He died two hours later on May 10, Medical Superintendent Dr Lisiate ‘Ulufonua said.

    “It was a coroner’s case which I have yet to receive the report”, he said.

    Tonga Police said today they also await the report.

    As Kaniva News reported last week it was believed the deceased inflicted the injuries on himself.

    His family called the hospital emergency service after they found him with severe injuries.
