Man, 31, died months before his wedding after falling off washing line at party

A groom-to-be suffered a fatal brain injury after falling off a washing line at a party.

Adam Ashby died after taking a tumble while attempting to show off to his family and friends at a birthday do.

The 31-year-old's heartbroken fiancee Abbie Wildeman was due to marry the alarm engineer from Maidstone, Kent, next January.

The 27-year-old said: "It's been devastating and so hard.

"He fell right in front of me, my friends, and my family.

"They were having a few beers and a laugh.

"Being a bit of a Jack the lad, he was climbing up the washing line but fell because the top was too weak."

Adam died in hospital hours after the horseplay went tragically wrong on May 27.

The washing line could not hold his weight and he had fallen to the ground – suffering a coma-inducing brain injury.

He was rushed to King's College Hospital in London before being taken off life-support that day.

Abbie, who now lives in Rochester, Kent, has been going through the agonising process of calling off her venue booking, telling caterers they are not needed and cancelling her wedding dress order.
