THE youngest son of prominent KwaDukuza resident Tarzan Naicker, Mikailin died on Thursday in an accident on the N2.
According to IPSS Medical Rescue’s Paul Herbst, paramedics were dispatched to the N2 south where a single light motor vehicle had allegedly rolled near the Tongaat Toll Plaza. Details of the accident are unclear at this stage.
On arrival paramedics found that Mikailin had gone into cardiac arrest.
IPSS Medical Rescue's paramedics were quick to respond and rapidly extricated Mikailin from the vehicle and began resuscitation efforts with Advanced Life Support.
“The patient responded well to resuscitation and spontaneous circulation returned.
“The patient was transported in a critical condition to an appropriate receiving hospital."
Unfortunately, 21-year-old Mikailin succumbed to his extensive injuries in hospital a few hours after the accident.
Mikailin was a second year law student at Varsity College and it is believed that he was on his way to sit for an examination at the time of the accident.
According to his close friends, Mikailan was a talented young man with unlimited potential.
“He was motivated and headstrong, but also compassionate and loving. He adored his family more than anything and protected them fiercely.
“He was a brilliant person and I wish more people could have had the privilege of being a part of his life,” said one youngster.
His funeral was held on Saturday at the Stanger Siva Sungum Hall with hundreds of people attending to pay their respects.
He leaves behind his parents, two brothers and a host of family and friends.
