Henry's life support systems were turned off on Monday night at 21H00 as per his wishes stated many time boefore the accident.

What happened:

Henry was on his way to work on Friday morning, on Olifantsfontein road between the the R21 and Midrand (he worked for Mecer in Midrand). It happened about 100m after the Thembisa intersection, Henry was behind a nissan in the right hand lane, a taxi changed lane, having not see the nissan, the nissan then slammed on brakes and took evasive actions. Henry having no time to react hit the back of the nissan and was flung over the car and landed in the island in the middle of the road where his bike caught alight and burnt out.

This is an eyewitness account from his brother who was in his car about 10 cars behind the incident.

He was airlifted to Sunnighill hosiptal where he injuries were a collapsed lung, ruptured kidney, a smashed right leg and massive head trauma. On friday he went in for brain surgery where they removed a 5cm X 3cm piece of his skull to reduce the pressure in his skull. Unfortunatly the brain never stopped swelling and was declared brain dead on Monday morning.




Thanks for all your kind words and good wishes, I will pass them onto the family and friends.

Regards
Bob (Malcolm)
