Man Dies While Visiting Mother's Grave

A British man died as he made his annual Christmas Day visit to his mother's grave -- after slipping on a patch of ice at the cemetery in Manchester, England, the Sun reported.

Jimmy Halpin, 54, was on his way to lay a wreath with his sister Frances when he lost his footing and suffered fatal head and neck injuries.

He was rushed to a local hospital, but was pronounced dead on arrival.

Just weeks earlier he lost his wife Ann, 55, to stomach cancer.
