HIGHLIGHTS

  • Symonds passed away after a car accident
  • A lot of efforts were made to save Symonds, but to no avail
  • Symonds was an integral member of the Australian team

A local man, named Waylon Townson, said that he tried to revive Andrew Symonds after the former Australian all-rounder encountered an accident in Townsville. But his efforts didn’t pay dividends as Symonds breathed his last on Saturday night at the age of 46.

In an interview with Nine Network, Townson mentioned that he tried to give Symonds CPR and kept checking his pulse.

“He was stuck in there, so I tried to pull him out. (I) started doing CPR and checked his pulse but I didn’t get much response from him,” Townson was quoted as saying.

On Sunday, May 15, the police said that emergency services also tried to revive Symonds, but to no avail as the Queenslander succumbed to his injuries. It’s yet not clear how Symonds’ car rolled down the embankment.

BUCHANAN PRAISES SYMONDS

After Symonds passed away, former Australia head coach John Buchanan heaped praise on him for the character he was.

“Roy (Symonds) was never perfect, that was for sure, and he never admitted that he was. But the one thing about Roy – and one of the things that I think endeared him to most people – was that even though he made a mistake, he would openly admit that and try to rectify that and take full accountability for that,” Buchanan said.

Symonds was an integral member of the Australian team for over a decade. He also played under Ricky Ponting’s leadership when the Aussies won the 2003 and 2007 World Cup. The veteran also played for the Deccan Chargers and Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
