R v Carey 
- The victim was threatened by some gang members, and ran away
- During the running away, the victim suffered a fatal heart attack
- Were the gang members guilty of unlawful act manslaughter?
- The threats were not unlawful
- The victim was not escaping, merely exiting at speed, not as a result of the threats
- The threats therefore did not cause the victim’s death
