In the aftermath of the tragic accident that claimed the life of 21-year-old Naeem Meerun, a resident of Sottise, Grand Bay, it is with heavy hearts that the victim’s loved ones try to recover from this painful event.
His death is causing a stir in the small village. At just 21, Naeem Meerun was a brother, a friend to some, but above all someone who was always ready to help. His good humor is what stands out in the testimonies of his family and friends.
In fact, testimonials on Facebook have multiplied since the young man’s death <<Parti trop tôt>>.
<<He was a golden boy, he always wore his most beautiful smile. Not only did he impress with his charm, but he was a very respectful person and fully honored his family commitments >>, says a close friend of the victim.
It is incredibly hard for those close to him to imagine that they will never again see Naeem Meerun realize his dream of building a house. The young man sadly died in a road accident in the early hours of Sunday morning in Upper Vale. The car he was driving went off the road and crashed into a wall. The impact was extremely violent. The vehicle was reduced to a pile of sheet metal, and the driver was trapped in what was left of his Toyota. His friend Sarvesh Ramphul, who had been sitting in the passenger seat, escaped with only minor injuries.
Despite the best efforts of the emergency team, Naeem Meerun was pronounced dead by the SAMU doctor. His body was taken to the Dr A.G Jeetoo hospital morgue for an autopsy.
At 10:45 a.m. the same day, the autopsy performed by Dr Maxwell Monvoisin, Principal Police Medical Officer (PPMO), in the presence of Sub Inspector Nundlall, attributed the victim’s death to a fracture and dislocation of the cervical spine.
From the initial findings of the investigation, it would appear that Naeem Meerun was driving towards Grand Baie when he lost control of his vehicle and collided with a wall.
An investigation is underway to determine the circumstances of the accident.
