‘My only son is gone’ – Mother of DJ killed in Uitvulgt smash-up
Nadira Hussain is still coming to grips with the loss of her only son Issac Hussain, 18, who was killed after the car he was driving crashed into a parked motor lorry at Uitvlugt, West Coast Demerara.
“That was my only son, he is the baby, everybody know him…now my only son is gone,” the grieving woman told the News Room on Tuesday during a telephone interview.
She last saw her son at their home at Tuschen, East Bank Essequibo around 22:30 hrs on Sunday; he had returned from his job as a disk jockey at the popular bar Dada’s Grill on the Tuschen public road.
“He come home and then he got a call and he tell me ‘Mommy, I coming back just now’ and that was the last thing I heard,” the woman recounted in tears.
Nadira said that some hours later, she received word that her son got into an accident.
When she and other family members arrived at the Leonora Cottage Hospital, her son was unresponsive and barely breathing.
“He was just lying on the stretcher, not saying anything with blood all over his skin…they told me that he got hemorrhage and one of his foot break.”
The grieving woman said that family members expected Issac to pull through but he died on Monday.
According to the police report, the accident occurred at around 23:05hrs on the Uitvlugt Public Road. While Issac succumbed to his injures, 19-year-old Michael Gomes of Tuschen and 22-year-old Pertab Singh of Parika, East Bank Essequibo, who were also in the car, are said to be in critical conditions.
Police said that Issac was in PZZ 5096, proceeding west along the southern side of the road when he allegedly lost control and collided with the parked motor lorry GVV 2920.
They were all rushed to the Leonora Cottage Hospital by public-spirited citizens.
