A 22-year-old man died after being pushed off the top deck at TopGolf by his friend in an accidental prank gone wrong in 2022. Per PEOPLE...

On Thursday, May 23, Essex senior coroner Lincoln Brookes ruled Conner Groom died by misadventure, BBC News and Essex Live reported.

Per the U.K.'s coroner's guide, death by misadventure occurs "from some deliberate human act which unexpectedly and unintentionally goes wrong."

The accident occurred as a result of "inebriated but not malicious horseplay" the coroner's report read, per BBC. Groom fell about 12 feet after being pushed over a safety net by his best friend at a TopGolf location in Chigwell, Essex, on Dec. 21, 2021.

I've been struggling recently. No matter where I looked I couldn't find a place to read 2-year old news stories. Thanks for coming through. Look forward to seeing if Russia invades any countries.

Honestly they should remove the bets so more idiots and golf casuals can die. Clean up the gene pool a bit.

After the lawsuit, I’m sure they’ll be doing that.

Maybe even before the lawsuit.

“After the lawsuit”. They shouldn’t even have to have a 10 ft safety net for people falling, but they do. Now, in clown world, TopGolf will be sued for nothing making it long enough where you can’t get pushed past the end.

On an unrelated note, the former best friend is banging the deceased 's GF.
