Another Australian Hughes went unconscious after hit by a bouncer, but survived

Two months after the tragic death of Phillip Hughes in November, another Australian cricketer Daniel Hughes was left unconscious briefly after being struck by a bouncer on his neck during a first grade match but fortunately survived. Daniel Hughes has attempted a hook shot from bowler Cameron Nupier but the delivery hit him on the back of his neck during batting for Northern Districts against Blacktown at Mark Taylor Oval. Daniel Hughes, team mate of Phil Hughes, plays in the Big Bash for Sydney Thunder, dropped his hands onto his knees as player on the field raced to his aid. The bouncer left a lump on the side of Daniel Hughes’s head of the size of a cricket ball" but after some tests and CT scans, he was safe and discharged from the hospital. The impact of the ball on Daniel Hughes neck was just millimeters away from the same main artery which killed Phillip Hughes life.
