An inquest has been hearing how a young soldier, who was about to become a parent, died during a military exercise on Dartmoor when he was hit by a unhitched trailer.
Private Cameron Laing ended up being pinned against the truck that had been towing the trailer, suffering severe injuries to his head and chest.
Those at the scene tried to resuscitate him for more than 45 minutes, but the inquest heard that his injuries were so severe that there was never any hope of success. Private Laing was declared dead at the scene.
The inquest is expected to last for three days.
