Young father electrocuted & in the fight for his life


Hi everyone I am setting up this page in support of my son & our family. My son was involved in a freak accident while at work.

My son is critically ill and currently in ICU in Middlemore Hospital following an incident on a worksite he was working at. He is a young father to 3 beautiful children his youngest turning only 1 year old in a few weeks, a humble family man, dedicated all round guy, loved by many friends & family.

He has extensive injuries & to expect 3 months in ICU with the probability of longer. His recovery should he survive will be months to years both physically, emotionally & mentally. We are praying he makes it through this tragic ordeal & is able to walk his daughter down the aisle, play soccer with his boys & continue to be the best Dad he's always been. As a mum to Jahden nothing will please me more to have my son home with us all laughing in joking around.

I am his mother, he is my only son. He has 2 sisters who need him home & I'm a Nana to his children.

Use of funds

All funds raised will help in support of his recovery both immediately & long term & importantly his 3 children & there mother.

So sorry to hear about your terrible accident. What a dreadful life changing event to have to deal with. My father became a tetraplegic after an accident and we loved him even more and were so glad for every minute of every day he was with us. He sadly died two months ago but by then he was 93. He was big on adapting to whatever life throws at you and leading your best life in the circumstances, (which isn't to say it was all fun and easy, it was certainly challenging, but just saying). Wishing you all the best for the future. kia kaha, fiona. :)
