At Goodlands: A Branch Falls On Tapeshwarlall Parsennoo Crushing His Skull

Tapeshwarlall Parsennoo went out very early on Thursday, April 28, to head to the médiclinique. After all tasks done, he was returning back home on his motorcycle when a branch fell on him.

The inhabitant of Plateau Road, Goodlands, died instantly with the impact of the shock. The autopsy, performed by Dr. Prem Shaman, medical examiner attributed the death to a skull fracture.

Rohit Parsennoo had left home at 7:00AM as he was suffering from a swollen left knee to go to the médiclinique which is not far from his house. However, at around 10 am, while the man was on the way back, a huge branch of a tree fell on him. Ritesh K., a shop assistant of 24 years, reflects the drama.

“Aprerlamor latisann”
“Motosiklis-la ti pe vinn dousma. Enn kout enn gro brans inn tom lor li. Avec d’autres personnes, j’ai tenté de soulever la branche, sans succès : elle était trop lourde,” he told the Defi Quotidien. Ritesh then informed the police who rushed to the scene. Firefighters had to be called to extricate the victim who had his head stuck under the branch. “Premie fwa mo trouv enn dram parey. Mo ankor soke,” said the young man.

The sad news spread like wildfire in the village. Many residents went on the streets to express their anger. “Dan Moris, apre lamor latisann. Plusieurs requêtes ont été faites réclamant que cet arbre soit abattu, mais nul n’a pris nos doléances en considération. Si les autorités concernées avaient réagi, ce drame aurait été évité. Un innocent a bêtement perdu la vie. C’est inacceptable,” fumed Vikash, one of the residents.

As for the relatives of the victim, there is consternation. Premila, 66, the victim’s wife says she saw her husband for the last time on Wednesday night.

“Il souffrait d’une enflure au genou gauche depuis quelques jours. Mercredi soir, je lui ai conseillé d’aller voir un médecin.

Après avoir discuté, nous sommes allés au lit. Jeudi, il s’est rendu très tôt à la médiclinique, sans me réveiller. Une fois sur place, il m’a téléphoné pour dire qu’il rentrerait après sa consultation. Il est sorti pour retrouver la santé et c’est son cadavre qui rentre à la maison,” says the woman. Parsennoo Rohit’s funeral will take place this Friday afternoon.

The survey is conducted by Constable Beeharry and inspector Kodhabux. It is placed under the supervision of the ACP Domah and chief inspector Doorbejasing . This tragedy reminds one similar case in September, in Vacoas, and in which a 21 year old died after a tree fell on his car.

The Environmental police: “Pie-ti pe pouri depi Lao”
Responsibles from the Environment Police went to the scene after learning the drama. “Pie-ti pe Koumans pouri depi Lao. Quand vous examinez l’arbre d’en bas, jamais on n’aurait pu se dire qu’il était pourri au sommet. On a identifié d’autres arbres à risques. Nous avons remis un rapport à la Road Development Authority pour qu’elle les abatte. D’ailleurs, le flamboyant, dont la branche est tombée sur le motocycliste, a déjà été abattu.”

Nando Bodha: “A patrol of engineers was established”
Met in the premises of Radio Plus, the Minister of Public Infrastructure, Nando Bodha, told the Defi Quotidien that the tree whose branch fell on the old man, was cut down. “Depuis jeudi, mon ministère a institué une patrouille d’ingénieurs, comprenant des officiers de la Road Development Authority et une équipe de la Road Safety Unit pour inspecter les routes fréquentées et nous informer des problèmes qu’ils constatent.”

Fall of another branch of a tree at Mme Azor, Goodlands
Another branch fell on the floor at Mme Azor, Goodlands. Fortunately, no injuries were reported. The Goodlands police moved to remove the branch. “Il y a deux mois, c’est à Mapou Leclezio qu’une branche est tombée. Heureusement, il n’y avait personne sur les lieux,” emphasized a police inspector.

Crushed in his car in 2015 in Vacoas
On the 21st of September 2015 a tree located near a commercial building at Vacoas, fell on a parked car, killing Kamlesh Bhundoo, a 21 years old man who was in the passenger seat. He got stuck in the scrap heap and he did not survive his injuries. The driver, aged 26, escaped with minor injuries.
