He subsequently transported Mahadeo to the Leonora Hospital from where he was transferred to the GPHC.One colleague disclosed that Mahadeo should have known better than to climb a scaffold wearing long boots when the place is wet and the season is rainy. “He should have left a $400 tape to fall down and don’t try to catch it,Patrick van Aanholt Jersey, that was not worth his life or any injury. He was a good person, he does not trouble anybody and he now starting out in life and now he settle down with his girlfriend.”According to the dead man’s mother-in-law Anita Deosarran,Joe Morgan Reds Jersey, last Diwali night her daughter had disappeared with “Kishan” and she only recently searched for them and begged them to return home.
