Brother Of Harry Potter Star Killed While Train Surfing 'Extremely Drunk'
The tragedy occurred in East London.
Jessie Cave, who played Lavender Brown in the Harry Potter films, lost her brother under tragic circumstances.
Ben Haddon-Cave, 27, and Paddy Bolster, 26, were electrocuted while train surfing and “extremely drunk” an inquest has heard, after coming into contact with overhead wires carrying 25,000 volts of electricity.
The Sun reports that Haddon-Cave and Bolster were found a mile apart on the train line between the London suburbs of Stratford and Hackney Wick on March 21.
The pair had reportedly travelled to London to attend a comedy show. The Sun reports a pathologist as saying Haddon-Cave’s body showed signs of “severe intoxication or extreme drunkenness”, while Bolster’s also showed signs of “extreme intoxication”.
Coroner Mary Hassell who said that Haddon-Cave’s upper body showed burns consistent with “high-voltage electrical trauma”.
“Death will have occurred immediately because of high voltage electrocution and from there Ben’s body and clothing will have caught fire.”
Tragically, she said that while Bolster was electrocuted, the trauma he suffered when he fell from the train was his likely cause of death.
