Coroner: Mark Dombroski’s Death Was Accidental

February 7, 2019

[Updated] The Coroner’s inquest findings have been released, which ruled that the death of American teenager Mark Dombroski was ‘accidental death or misadventure.’

Mr Dombroski, a 19-year-old student at St Joseph’s University, was in Bermuda to take part in a rugby tournament in March 2018.

He went missing in the early hours of the morning on Sunday, March 18, 2018, and after a search involving numerous people, his lifeless body was found at the bottom of a significant drop at Fort Prospect on the afternoon of Monday, March 19th.

An overseas forensic pathologist previously stated that he “died from a fall” and there was “no evidence of foul play,” and a coroners inquest was held into his death late last year, with the judgement handed down today, after having been shared with the family.
