|Swinburn victorious on Shergar|
Westminster Coroner's Court detailed, Swinburn's death was attributed to the head injuries he sustained after falling 12 feet from his bathroom window.
Wally Swinburn's [father], found his 55-year-old son at his Belgravia maisonette. His father theorised that the jockey of 1981 Derby winner Shergar had been left shaken after suffering an epileptic fit. Trying to close a very stiff window, he fell from the sill onto the courtyard below.
Coroner Dr. Shirley Radcliffe expressed her "deep condolences" to the family, and said: "It seems there is little doubt his tragic death was due to an accident." Speaking outside the court, Swinburn's brother Michael said: "As we thought, it was a tragic accident. The whole thing has been a big shock to us. It was a tragic, tragic accident."
