Did you see that.. Absolutely getting crushed.
Very Frightening connections b/w concussions, depression and suicide
The Pozzobon family released a statement which did not reveal specific details but did include a cryptic quote from his mother, Leanne:
“It’s important that people know about the implications of head injures as the result of concussion.”
Family spokeswoman Gail Joe told CBC News that Leanne Pozzobon wants people to be aware of the connection between concussion and mental illness before it’s too late.
Ty Pozzobon’s death has been confirmed as a suicide.
Samples of his brain tissue have been collected by concussion researchers.
