When Dias Trotz left his home on Saturday last, little did he know that it would have been the last time he kissed his children “good-bye” as he journeyed into the interior to take care of his business.
Trotz, 27, the son of Senior Superintendent of Police Owen Trotz, Commander of ‘C’ Division succumbed to his injuries following a horrific smash-up on the Mabura Road.
The father of three of Lot 136 New Road Vreed-en-Hoop operates a beer garden in Mahdia, where he has been spending one-third of his time for the past few years.
According to the man’s wife, Alisha Trotz, her husband was sitting in the front seat of the mini bus when the accident occurred.
The wife stated that her husband was returning to Mahdia to tend to his business after spending a week with his family.
She described her husband as a hard worker who wanted to build a future for his three children. “He is very kind, he wanted his children to live happy and comfortable and he did whatever he could to make them happy.”
She said when she got the news about her husband’s accident, she, as well as other relatives rushed to the Georgetown Hospital and were surprised to see that the staff at the facility were not prepared for the patients, who were transferred from the Linden Hospital.
“They didn’t had no attendants, the nurses weren’t prepare for the patients, there was no wheel chairs and I only saw two doctors tending to the four critical patients,” the wife claimed.
She said there were a lot of delays at the hospital, which was a “big waste of time.”
“He sustained a broken left leg, dislocated right knee and laceration to his head,” Mrs. Trotz told this publication.
The dead man’s father had also spent several hours at the hospital while he was being treated and was hoping for the best.
But when news of Trotz’s death was relayed late Saturday evening, the family was not prepared.
Meanwhile, the other persons from the accident are said to be in a stable condition.
Last Saturday, a Mini bus, BMM 7746 and a pickup GNN 5696 collided at 58 Miles Mabura Road. Nine persons were reportedly in the mini bus, while two were in the pickup.
According to reports, the mini bus was on its way to Linden when it ‘veered’ into the lane of the pickup, and caused the collision.
The passengers were rushed to the Linden Hospital, where some were discharged and three were transferred to GPHC. Two remained hospitalised and one succumbed.
