    Ralph Stephen Bennet 1642411 , was injured in an on duty MT accident , when his vehicle collided with a stationary crane on 21 June. Admitted seriously ill with concussion to Number 15 CCS at La Salla College, Kowloon, he died there of his injuries

    This corrects the error in this database where it states he died at Number 25 General hospital in BOAR . It also completes Hong Kong
