no, the actual is worse:
he jumped off to dive from height of about 30ft, slipped and didnt carry himself over the edge of the concrete harbour wall - in fact he just skimmed it, but as he was diving he skimmed it with his face - there were some metal bits sticking out which basically ripped his whole face open from forehead to chin in a big gash. it was quite a mess and the teeth were just kinda hanging out.
he dies, but not before you see him writhing in agony in a hospital - the doctor not knowing what to do, translates "what a mess" or words to that effect and you see just how bad it is when the doctor holds the face together and you see what he looks like, but then lets go and it all falls away again - pretty horific. must have been in some extreme pain.
