Ronan Sexton passed away over the weekend in Co Antrim
Liam Neeson is mourning the death of his nephew Ronan Sexton who died over the weekend.
The Belfast Telegraph reports that Sexton, 35, passed away over the weekend in Cushendall, Co Antrim.
In June 2014, Sexton fell from the top of a phone booth while out with friends in Brighton.
Sussex Police at the time of the accident said in a statement: “Just after 4 am on Sunday, June 22 a 31-year-old Worthing man had climbed on to the top of a telephone kiosk outside Brighton Pier when he fell 20ft to the ground, sustaining a serious head injury.”
“He was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital and was later transferred to Hurstwood Park Hospital in Haywards Heath where he is currently in a critical condition.”
“The man had been enjoying a night out with friends, who were present when he fell, and the incident is not being treated as suspicious.”
“There is no further police investigation.”
Sexton, the youngest of Neeson’s sister Bernadette’s six children, reportedly never fully recovered from his injuries that night.
Local priest Luke McWilliams said the family has requested privacy at this time.
