Freak accident kills Kiwi in London - Yahoo! New Zealand A New Zealand man has been killed by a falling betting shop sign in London. The unnamed Kiwi man, thought to be in his 20s, was hit on the head by a metal sign which fell from a William Hill betting shop on Camden Road, Camden Town on Monday around 5pm. The 9m-long sign fell from the shop front onto the pavement striking the pedestrian. He suffered a cardiac arrest and was treated at the scene before being taken to University College Hospital where he died a short time later, a Scotland Yard spokesman said. Wonder what the odds of that happening are ?.
