ADAM GARRIE—The coroner’s report is therefore consistent with the original medical examination of Warmbier. This is also consistent with North Korean medical reports. Each source agrees that Warmbier suffered from a lack of oxygen to the brain which was caused by apparent cardiac failure, but it is still not clear why Warmbier’s heart suffered an apparent breakdown. The publication of the coroner’s report has led North Korea to blast Donald Trump for politicising Warmbier’s death as being due to North Korean negligence.
