Luke Sewell, 20, found dead with severe head injuries in a ravine
Inquest heard it was ‘likely’ passers-by would have seen him but didn’t help
He had been in Morocco with Newcastle University’s Surfing Society
Moroccan police said death ‘not suspicious’ but would not share findings
A surfer who was found dead in a ravine while on a university trip to Morocco was ‘ignored’ by onlookers who were going to a nearby mosque ‘because they feared having to pay his medical bills’, an inquest heard.
Luke Sewell, 20, from Wilmslow, Cheshire, was found on a riverbank at the bottom of a 20ft ravine near his hotel in Agadir in March 2014.
Cheshire Coroners’ Court found it was ‘likely’ that Luke had been spotted as early as 4am by people going to the mosque – but nobody stopped due to fears over ‘financing the bill’.
