FOR AUSTRALIANS: REPORTER RICHARD CARLETON IS DEAD

Sun May 07, 2006 8:11 am

Just got this half an hour ago (1:30pm). Richard Carleton, media veteran and reporter of 60 minutes has just died. He had just asked a question to the mining manager of the Beaconsfield mine, and then collapsed soon after. He was taken to the Launceston General hospital, but prenounced dead there. At the moments, details are still coming in, but Richard had just come out of a battle of Prostate cancer a while back

I must say i'm a bit shocked that a reporter of his country fame has just passed
