Hammer Throw Death An Accident: Wheaton Police

Wheaton police are blaming a moment of inattention for the death of a Wheaton college student who was hit by a hammer at a track meet in April.  Nineteen-year-old Ethan Roser was a volunteer at the meet, charged with marking where hammer throws landed and retrieving the 16-pound balls.  Police say that Roser was watching the horseplay of two other volunteers during warmups when he was hit as he stood just outside the area for in-bound throws to land.
