Clearly, it made no difference, seeing as he's dead and all.

Geeze, what I'm getting at here, is was there a severe impact to the head?

Was he impaled in the heart?

Had he NOT wore a helmet, would it have made a difference?

The headline is what it is. It's just descriptive for the person that died and not the details of the death. It's not meant to tell the story.

I understand your question, and given the information available, I think it's safe to say he'd be just as dead without the helmet, if not deader.
The article does not include a specific cause of death.

I did, I interpreted your question "Would the helmet have made a difference?" to mean the assumption was he was not wearing one at the time, otherwise the question might have been phrased a bit differently.

So to answer, with him being dead and all, I think it's safe to say, no, the helmet did not make a difference in this case which should have been obvious with the fact that he WAS wearing one AND is still dead.
