Newlywed Dies After Being Struck In Head With Softball

A newlywed woman in Florida was forced to plan her new hubby’s funeral within weeks of tying the knot.

Taylor and Greg Fusco had just returned from their honeymoon days earlier when a fatal accident occurred at a softball tournament in Nocatee, Florida, news station WTLV reported.

Fusco was pitching in the game when a ball struck him in the temple, causing a skull fracture, according to a GoFundMe page.

“He was conscious after he was hit and walked off the field but when he got to the hospital he was unable to speak,” friend Cortney Hinkle told WTLV.

Fusco was airlifted to a Jacksonville hospital where doctors determined that he shattered his temple and suffered a blood clot.

Friends and family initially thought he was on the mend before his health took a turn for the worse.

Fusco died at the hospital days after he was admitted.

“His vitals looked good and he was able to squeeze his wife’s hand, so we did think he was going to make a recovery,” Hinkle said

Fusco’s death came just two days before the couple’s one-month anniversary.

Friends created the GoFundMe page to raise money for his hospital bills.

A charity softball tournament was also held Saturday in his honor.
