The 40-year-old man was returning from Alandi, where he had gone to cremate the ashes of his wife on Friday. While the family was already coping with one tragedy, unforeseen circumstance put them in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Shivaji, works as an auto driver and was ferrying his daughter, son and his mother back from Alandi. While on his way back he stopped at a red light. And within moments, the hoarding came falling down upon them. While his children and mother escaped unharmed. Shivaji Pardeshi was trapped under the hoarding and sustained injuries. He was rushed to Pune’s Sassoon hospital, where he died during the treatment.
Just two days after losing their mother, his children have now been orphaned as a result of this disastrous event.
He is survived by his Samruddhi, his 18-year-old daughter and Samarth, his 4-year-old son.
While speaking to My Medical Mantra Nitin Vikule, Shibaji’s neighbour said, “On Thursday, October 04, Shivaji’s wife died. He along with his son, daughter and mother had gone to Alandi, to cremate his wives ashes. But, the death struck him on his way back home. He died during treatment at the hospital.”
