ICC need to think about the umpires

An umpire dies after being hit by a cricket ball. The incident may be a freak one and rare but umpires do face the risk of being hit as batsmen get bolder and the stakes increase in aggressive forms of cricket like Twenty20.
Incidentally, an established umpire had warned of such incidents not long back.
Question is will the ICC wake up in time or will it be too late for some more of them even as batsmen get more cushion with thigh guards, arm guards, etc.
