Gardaí release detailed description of man killed in Dublin bus accident

Gardaí have released a detailed description of the man who died after he was crushed by a Dublin bus during the week.

Detectives are still questioning a man about his death, but so far have had no luck in identifying the victim.

It has been two days now since the man, who was in his late 20s, was killed after he fell under the wheels of a number 145 bus on Dawson St.

In an effort to establish the victim's identity, detectives have today issued a lengthy description.

He is described as 6ft in height, of slim build with dark, unkempt hair and gaunt features. At the time of his death, he was wearing a grey hoody under a black woollen zip-up jumper and a black windbreaker.

He also had a pair of black tracksuit bottoms under blue jeans, but no wallet or ID.

Gardaí say he had several tattoos of dragons across his body and both his lip and tongue were pierced.

It is thought the victim may have been involved in a row with two men just before he died. One man in his 20s was arrested yesterday. He is still being questioned.
