Neurosurgery Expert Witness On Police Cell Injury

The Vancouver Sun reports:

neurosurgery expert witness Dr. George Stuart Cameron testified Thursday that whatever happened to brain-damaged Thomas McKay while in police cells was more than just a fall. “I would expect his head was traveling at a higher velocity than just a simple fall,” said the expert.

McKay had a skull fracture over his left eye, extending across the top of his head. Cameron performed surgery to remove a blood clot formed underneath McKay’s skull lying against his brain, part of an injury he agreed was life-threatening. McKay and his family say Victoria Police Constable Greg Smith pushed McKay while his hands were cuffed behind his back so that his head struck the concrete floor.
