Andrew Symonds' dogs survived the car crash, refused to leave his body's side

Former Australian cricketer Andrew Symonds whose tragic demise shook the world on May 14, had a very loyal dog indeed. Dogs are loving, caring, and have the purest of hearts to a point where we sometimes say that humans don’t deserve these fur balls. Symonds’ dogs proved to be one of the souls indeed. The cricketer was accompanied by two of his dogs when the accident took place. The dogs survived and one of them refused to leave his body’s side.

One of the witnesses shared that the pup was refusing to leave his master’s side and kept growling if anyone came near the cricketer’s body.

Australia’s Courier Mail quoted one of the witnesses as saying that “When we got there we could see a car upside down with a man in it. One of them (the dog) was very sensitive and didn’t want to leave him. It would just growl at you every time we tried to move him or go near him.”

“My partner tried to get (Symonds) out of the car, to put him on his back. He was unconscious, not responsive, and had no pulse,” she (the witness) added.

The fatal accident took place in Queensland, Australia, on the outskirts of the Townsville area. The police are investigating the accident but slowly the details of the accident emerged. The two time World cup winner, 46, was the only passenger in the crash. As per a police statement, the cricketer star breathed his last “shortly after 11 pm when the car was being driven on Hervey Range Road when it left the roadway and rolled”.

“Emergency services attempted to revive the 46-year-old driver and sole occupant, however, he died of his injuries”

The year 2022, has been tragic for the cricket world. Symonds is the third former Australian cricketer to tragically pass away after champion leg-spinner Shane Warne died from a heart attack in Thailand in March and former wicketkeeper Rod Marsh passed away from a heart attack earlier this year.
