Good day,

 

 I know that everybody has a hectic schedule, and that you may not

 even have time to read through all your work-related e-mails. But I

 would appreciate it if you could spare me 2 minutes of your valuable

 time to read this mail.

 

 In the past - when reading similar e-mails - I have always said a

 silent prayer for God to please spare me, my family and friends the

 pain and heartache that other people go through, but it seems that my

 time has come...

 

 On Saturday, 9 May 2009 - between 15:00 and 16:00, my 24-year old

 nephew was involved in a near fatal hit-and-run bike accident on

 Ontdekkers Road (close to the corner of Ruhama and Ontdekkers Road).

 He was travelling west on <?: prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />

Ontdekkers Road
when a person (if I can

 call him/her that!) hit him off his bike. The person then skipped

 the red robot on

Ruhama Road
and just drove off! Leaving my nephew

 lying there in the rain... I cannot comprehend how any human being -

 that has just caused a major accident - could just leave another

 human being lying in the road, for dead!

 

 A lady and her husband (herewith referred to as angels!!) travelling

 in the opposite direction, turned around and stopped to help. She

 took off her jacket and threw it over my nephew, sitting next to him

 at the side off the road, in the pouring rain, waiting for paramedics

 to arrive. I would like to thank them both from the bottom of my

 heart for showing kindness and caring!!

 

 My nephew is currently in the Milpark Hospital with the following

 injuries:

 

 * broken skull

 * bleeding on the brain

 * brain damage

 * both arms and legs broken - of which he might loose his one arm

     and his one foot

 * lungs gave in - he is on a respirator

 * he will be in an induced coma for 9 - 14 days

 

 If anyone out there knows anything about this accident, or knows who

 might be responsible for it - I am begging you - to please come

 forward with the information. My nephew is such a joy to everyone,

 and does not deserve this. Whoever caused this accident, needs to

 take full responsibility for it.

 

 Could I also ask you to please forward this e-mail to everyone on

 your mail list.

 

 Please contact any of the following persons on the numbers below with

 any information.

 

 Carmen - 083 294 0634

 Madeleine - 082 953 1659 or 084 405 2977 Ilze - 079 043 3182
