Brea Man Dies After Hit In Head By Golf Ball

CHINO (AP) — Authorities say a man who was hit in the head with a golf ball at a Southern California country club has died.

The San Bernardino County coroner’s office said on its website Sunday that 69-year-old Hiroshi Tango of Brea died at a hospital Saturday.

On Oct. 7, Tango was playing golf at Los Serranos Country Club in Chino when he was hit in the head by a ball.

The coroner says he complained of head and neck pain after he was hit and he was taken to Loma Linda University Medical Center, where he “succumbed to his injuries” on Saturday, nine days after he was struck by the stray ball.

    Such a sad way to die. My heart goes out to his family. I went golfing on Saturday at a course in SanGabriel Valley and my cousin and I were almost hit 4 times by stray golf balls.
