The man who lost his partner and two children in an horrific crash – then had his house burgled – has thanked the public for their support.
His nine year old daughter and five year old son, along with their mother, were killed when their motorhome and an HGV collided near the Jinnah Restaurant at Flaxton in September.
The father survived and so did a six-year-old boy, although he was seriously hurt.
When they were released from hospital and returned home, they found it had been ransacked by burglars. An XBox, TV and personal items were taken.
Yesterday (Sunday), Sgt Cording met with the father and his son. “A coffee and man hugs all round,” he reported on Twitter.
“The dad wanted me to say thank you to each and every one of you that made such generous donations.”
Firefighter Bryan Barrett replied: “I’m sure, that both father and son are so grateful for your support Paul, which goes above and beyond the call of duty.
“As a fellow attendee of that horrid incident, I salute you.”
