Plymouth pensioner fell to his death from window
A PENSIONER fell to his death through an open window, an inquest heard.
Coroner Ian Arrow yesterday held an inquest into the death of Colin Moore, a 78-year-old retired engineer who had lived at Clarendon Guest House for 16 years.
The hearing heard how Regina Martin, who runs the Devonport Road guest house with her partner Saeed, found a first floor kitchen window "wide open" one February morning.
She closed the window but then "screamed" as she spotted Mr Moore's body lying in the garden below. The inquest heard how police suspected Mr Moore had not died instantly but had stumbled into bushes, dying a short time later.

The single man, described by the owners of Clarendon as a "quiet gentleman who kept himself-to-himself", died from head and pelvic injuries.
Mr Arrow said no substances or alcohol were found in his system and there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.
A verdict of accidental death was recorded.
