    Question Is the following sentence correct?

    Is the following sentence correct?

    Being in giving an accurate depiction to the crime was because it took place in front of his eyes.


    The sentence sounds totally ungrammatical to me. I have never heard the expression 'being in giving'.

    I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

    The sentence doesn't make any sense at all. Perhaps: "His being able to give an accurate description of the crime, was due to it having taken place in front of his eyes".
