He succeeded in keeping everybody safe but at the time he wanted to jump out of the falling truck, it was to late as the truck fell on him which lead to his instant death. The incident attracted a crowd of sympathizers who gathered at the accident scene. Detective Inspector Domenica Catino, of the Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: “A young woman has lost her life and our thoughts remain with her family and friends, who have been devastated by Katrina’s death.
“This case is a tragedy for everyone involved. This was a case of manslaughter in which the victim had taken a knife to the scene. After an altercation with Dada this knife – which had never been taken out of the bag pierced the bag, stabbing her in her chest resulting in her death. “This is unfortunately another sad example of the consequences of carrying knives. We must all work hard to prevent any further loss of lives.”
