MONTREAL -- A race-track worker at the Canadian Grand Prix was killed Sunday after he slipped under the wheel of a crane at the end of the Formula One event. Officials said the man was escorting the crane as it moved Esteban Gutierrezs Sauber car, which did not finish the Montreal race. The accident occurred shortly after the checkered flag waved to signal the end of the race, a major weekend sporting event for the city that draws hundreds of thousands of fans to Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. "The recovery vehicle had lifted the car to return it to the pits, and while doing this, the worker dropped his radio and attempted to pick it up," Matteo Bonciani, F1s head spokesman, said as he read a statement to reporters at the track. "As he did this, he stumbled and was hit and run over by the recovery vehicle." The man, in critical condition, was airlifted to Sacre-Coeur Hospital by helicopter after being stabilized by race-track trauma nurses. "Unfortunately, the worker succumbed to his injuries at the hospital," said Bonciani, adding that organizers wanted "to communicate their deepest condolences to the family and friends of the victim." Officials would not immediately release the identity of the victim, but said he was a member of the Automobile Club de lIle Notre Dame. Hospital officials said in a statement that he was a volunteer at the track. "Its terrible," said a visibly shaken Francois Dumontier, the Grand Prixs promoter. "It tarnishes the superb weekend that we had. I am devastated to learn this, I dont have any other words." Gutierrez tweeted about the incident from his verified Twitter account: "My dearest condolences to the family of the marshal who lost his life today, our prayers for him & his family. RIP." Earlier Sunday, Dumontier said the crane operator couldnt see the man when he hit him. "Unfortunately, the vehicles wheel passed over his body," he said before the worker died in hospital. The events chief medical officer said a physician, who happened to be nearby when the accident occurred, rushed to the injured worker. The man was still conscious when the doctor arrived at his side, he added. "He went there within 30 seconds (and) started stabilizing him," said Jacques Bouchard. He said trauma workers at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve treated the worker enough to have him taken to hospital by helicopter. He was declared dead a few hours later. Bouchard said the worker, about 38 years old, had been working at the track for 10 years. He said the man was walking with the crane to help stabilize the Sauber car, as it hung from a cable. This wasnt the first death at a Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal. In 1982, Riccardo Paletti, a rookie driver for the Osella team, was killed when he slammed into Didier Pironis stalled car on the starting grid. Other F1 events have also witnessed deaths on the track. A marshal was killed at the 2001 Australian Grand Prix when Canadian Jacques Villeneuves BAR Honda car leapfrogged another car and flew into a concrete retaining wall. The crash sent all four tires and other debris across the track and into a fence. Only six months earlier, a fire marshal at the 2000 Italian Grand Prix died when he was struck by a wheel thrown from a multi-car pileup on the first lap of the race. In 1977, at the South African Grand Prix, race marshal Frederick van Vuuren died in the same incident that killed driver Tom Pryce. Van Vuuren had run onto the track to attend to a stalled car when he was struck by Pryces car. The fire extinguisher he was carrying flew out of his hands and hit Pryce in the head. Other Canadian cities have also had racing-related deaths. At the 1996 Toronto Molson Indy, an official died in the same crash that killed rookie driver Jeff Krasnoff. Another track official was killed at the 1990 Vancouver Molson Indy when the car he was pushing on the track was rammed by another car. Wholesale NFL Gear .

It is calm, there is no bunny hop, no bucking bronco, the cat is not on a hot tin roof, and the goat has left the trampoline. Younis Khan looks like Younis Khan again. Younis Khan, the Pakistani batting legend.Earlier in the tour it hasnt been like this, it has been a horror comedy. At times it was as if gremlins were biting him, he was hopping across a road dressed as an elf, he had fallen off the back of a truck, a man who has forgotten how gravity works. He has five limbs, his left and right feet are in an eternal dance off against each other, and hes auditioning to play the plastic bag in the American Beauty reboot. Thats what Twitter thought. Batting coaches and cricket analysts probably just combusted upon watching it.In one shot his back foot was dragging towards square leg as his front foot went forward and across in the other direction; his bat was in the middle of this, missing the ball. There were leg glances that even if he had middled the ball he had jumped so far across the wicket he could have middled them onto his stumps. A simple forward defence turned into a weird dance move with a kicking back leg. Another delivery and his hands are thrusting out as if he is trying to punch the ball, not hit it, and his feet go backwards. Another leg glance ends with him using his bat as a crutch so he doesnt fall over.And that is just a taste of how bad Younis had got. At Lords, even his leaves were an extraordinary dramatic contemporary dance move that conveyed emotions of worry and doubt. It was a trigger movement that was squat, charge and hope.Either Younis Khan, the Pakistani batting legend, had been replaced by some eager frightened replica, or Younis Khan, the Pakistani batting legend, had convinced himself that this was a batting method that could somehow work. Both didnt make sense. Younis found it hard to play his regular shots as he propelled himself at the ball like he was a secret service agent and the ball was a bullet.33, 25, 1, 18, 31 and 4 were all he had to show for it on what have been tracks that several other Pakistani batsmen have been good on.Was he over thinking it, trying to get in line so much that he was jumping there? Were the pitches outside Asia getting to a man who didnt have young reflexes? Had no one in the changeroom taken him aside and said: Um, Younis, dude, whats going on? Was this the end, how the great man would go, launching himself to his own doom?At Younis age, the slightest sign of weakness is seen as the end. This wasnt a subtle sign; it was a massive jumping neon one. But every Test Younis had been paring back his kangaroo technique a little. By the time he goot to Edgbaston, he might not have been making runs, but at least he was trying to get there.ddddddddddddoday he got there. There was still the Younis squat, but there wasnt the Khan thrust. He stood in his crease, waited for the ball, his legs usually stayed where he wanted them, and when the ball came he played a Younis appropriate shot to them. He might have still gone across his crease, but he did it with his head screwed on and his feet often (as much as he ever does) touching the ground.It was a batsman of balance, patience and skill, making runs when the conditions were in his favour and his team needed a lot of them. He played all his classics, strike rotated, spinner milked, and quicks handled. He held his batting partners hand as he got nervous and went about building a total that Pakistan would need to win the game.Younis form was so good and off-putting to England that they reviewed a ball he middled. And compared to every other day in this series he middled a lot. A sweep off Moeen was so muscular it had its own throbbing bicep and a six went further than a 40-plus man should be able to hit anything.When he brought up his 50 it was a shot the Younis of Lords would have struggled to play. It was short and wide from Anderson, Younis waited and pounced, instead of pouncing and hoping. The ball disappeared through point. It was a shot so Younis, the Pakistani batting legend, it was practically autographed.Later he would play another, even better. As the ball cracked through backward point you couldnt help but wonder where this calm, skilful, and patient batting had been all series. Pakistan have been so close to winning this series, what they really needed was this Younis, the Pakistani batting legend, to arrive.Asad Shafiq made being on 99 look like a Japanese horror film; Younis made it look like a Sunday afternoon walk. This despite a new ball for England that was moving. The wicket of his captain Misbah. And the gift from Iftikhar. Younis was on 99 for all of it. And yet at his end, it was serene. When Stuart Broad bowled a searching ball in and around off stump, Younis moved smoothly into the line, dropped his hands softly, middled the ball and wandered up the pitch like he was checking on his azaleas.Even when he celebrated his hundred there was no leap of joy. The leaping had gone, this was just batting. His team needed him, so he made a hundred. It was no different to the other 31 Test hundreds he has made. It was just number 32 for the Pakistani batting legend.
