A 911 call from a woman driving behind Chris Henry during the pickup truck incident that ultimately took his life provided a new, scary take on the events.
She told the dispatcher that the Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver, shirtless, was “beating on the back window of the truck,” presumably from its bed.
His arm was in a cast from injuries suffered during this NFL season.
At some point during the Wednesday incident, the football player fell from the truck, sustaining injuries that left Chris Henry dead at age 26 this morning.
A second person also called 911 after Chris Henry fell.
Reporting the severity of the situation, the man said that Henry was “laying in the middle of the road,” was clearly badly injured and surrounded by people.
It is unclear what prompted the bizarre situation, but Henry’s fiancee, Loleini Tonga, was believed to have been driving the vehicle he fatally fell from.
