A man critically injured in an altercation with his son in the Brisbane CBD yesterday has died in hospital.
The 53-year-old Ashmore man was allegedly punched in the mouth after a verbal confrontation on Ann Street about 4pm yesterday.
He then fell backwards and hit his head on the footpath, causing him to lose consciousness, reports 9 NEWS.
He was taken to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital with life-threatening injuries, but sadly he died today.
The man’s 25-year-old son, Morgan Isles-English, appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court this morning charged with one count of grievous bodily harm.
Police are now considering upgrading the charges after the man’s death.
Mr Isles-English, from Teneriffe, paced, sobbed and bumped his head on the glass of the dock after being led into court today.
“I love you,” he told a woman in the public gallery, believed to be his mother.
Mr Isles-English did not apply for bail and the matter has been adjourned until August 15.
