looking for info on fatal and serious injuries

I've been looking for URLs or some online documents on fatal and serious aikido injuries and so far I've only been able to find a few (which may be a good sign). Unfortunetly, I do remember reading somewhere that there have been numerous death during practice and the info that I've found doesn't reflect that.

I'm interested in descriptions of the injuries and what were the circumstances surrounding the accident. Off the top of my head, I can recall several, namely about a woman in the US who got paralyzed after colliding with an uke and a university student in Japan who died from injuries to the brain after his head struck the mat during vigorous applications of shiho nage.
