Statement from the family of Tayne Bowes

Mark and Katrina Bowes are devastated and heartbroken at the loss of their son Tayne in a tragic accident on Sunday night.

They appreciate the incredible support they have been given by their friends, family and the wider West Coast community over the past few days.

Tayne was a bright and inquisitive young boy, who enjoyed playing rugby and loved his sister dearly.

The family will be having a funeral service for Tayne later this week. This will not be open to the media.

Their 8-year-old daughter Keira, who was also involved in the accident, has now been discharged from Grey Base Hospital and is at home with her parents.

The family now wishes to focus on Keira’s recovery and trying to come to terms with their enormous grief. They request privacy during this time.

This is a stressful and difficult time for the family and they will not be making any further comment.
