New family heartbreak for Liam Neeson

 New family heartbreak for Liam Neeson

Heartbreak has struck again for the family of Liam Neeson as his nephew has died five years after a serious head injury.

Ronan Sexton, 35, passed away over the weekend while surrounded by his loved ones in Cushendall, Northern Ireland, as reported by the Belfast Telegraph.

He suffered serious head injuries after a night out with friends, falling six metres from a phone box after a drunken dare went terribly wrong.

Parish priest Fr Luke McWilliams told the Belfast Telegraph on Tuesday that the family asked for privacy whilst they mourned their loss.

Much to the similar fate of his wife and Hollywood actress, Natasha Richardson, who passed away in 2009, Ronan suffered from fatal head injuries.

His death comes 10 years after the Hollywood star suffered a similar fate while on a skiing trip.  

At 45, her life sadly ended after she hit her head while skiing in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec
