A MAN died after hitting his head at his flat, an inquest heard.
Police were called to a flat in Festing Road, Southsea, after a neighbour had discovered 43-year-old Keith Welsh collapsed on the floor.
Ambulance crews also went to the flat on March 8 of this year and attempted to revive Mr Welsh, but he could not be saved.
The hearing at Portsmouth Guildhall was told Mr Welsh had a long-standing illness relating to alcoholism.
His health problems made him unsteady on his feet and he was advised to use a walking frame. However, he was reluctant to use the device, the inquest heard.
A pathologist said there was severe bleeding on the brain due to a head injury.
Recording accidental death, Coroner David Horsley said: ‘He collapsed and hit his head on the floor of his flat.’
