A 40-year-old man is dead because he was in the way when a Turkish cyclist passed by. The pedestrian died yesterday in hospital. The migrant had first beaten the man from Hanover into a coma, now he has died because of his injuries.The 28-year-old had got off his bicycle and had attacked the pedestrian in Limmer street in Hanover's Linden-Nord district because he had allegedly obstructed him as he crossed the street. The martial artist hit the 40-year-old so hard in the face several times that the victim went unconscious to the ground with severe head injuries.Although passers-by immediately provided first aid, the pedestrian fell into a coma and did not wake up. The crime took place on Monday. Ilja T died on Thursday. Meanwhile, police are investigating the Turkish-born cyclist for manslaughter. According to prosecutor Kathrin Söfker, the attacker should have martial arts experience: "He must know that such blows cause serious injuries", she quotes the newspaper HAZ. He apparently accepted this. The 28-year-old man was only remanded in custody two days after the crime. Previously, the police had assumed that the victim had been assaulted and had let the Turk go free.According to investigators, the perpetrator may have been under the influence of drugs. However, the blood test result is still pending.
