Ticker rib-tickler

Boguslaw Piekos, a 32 year-old Pole who lived in Reading, England, was very drunk when he fell down stairs and landed on top of a shoe rack.

An inquest has now been told that he died from a broken rib that penetrated his heart. The pile of shoes has been cleared of complicity.

Verdict: death by misadventure.
