Boy critical after accident

A 13-year-old Narromine local has been grievously injured after falling from a truck travelling 100 kilometres per hour in Walgett last Friday, January 17. 

Tyler Zeke Williams was a passenger in the truck when he fell from the fast-moving vehicle.

He is currently in a critical condition in Randwick Children’s Hospital, Intensive Care Unit.

Family and friends are trying to rally support, as Tyler’s family remain vigilant at his bedside, hoping for a speedy recovery.

Spokesperson for the Tyler Zeke Williams fundraiser, Tracey Thurbon said Tyler could be in Sydney for another eight weeks. 

She said Tyler was in a critical condition and is non-responsive at the moment.” 

Ms Thurbon said Tyler spent time in a Sydney hospital last year and this recent accident was another blow for the teenager.

“This is a real kick in the guts for Tyler and his family,” she said.

Although no events are organised as of yet, Tyler’s support network has established a Facebook page titled Tyler Zeke Williams Fundraiser, where people can make donations to the cause.

Family and friends of Tyler would be grateful for any donations.
