• His mother: “I don’t know how I’m going to survive without him”

Terry Lamarque, a Mauritian kitesurfer, met a tragic end after a road accident which occurred around 2:30 a.m. on Saturday June 1 in Tamarin. Riding a motorcycle, the 36-year-old man apparently lost control while negotiating a roundabout. The impact was violent and he was pronounced dead at the scene. His injured girlfriend was taken to PMOC hospital in Candos, where she is admitted.

In La Gaulette, among the relatives of the deceased, there is consternation. The mother claims to be unaware of the circumstances of the accident. She says she learned the news around 4 a.m., after a resident of her neighborhood found Terry Lamarque and his girlfriend on the asphalt, on the road to Tamarin. He then informed the family and the police, says the mother.

The latter indicates that relatives went to the hospital, where they learned of Terry's death. “They said the girl was in critical condition,” the mother said. She specifies that her son hit a tree on his way and wonders about the exact circumstances of the tragedy. “We know he hit a tree, but we don’t know if anyone passed in front of him,” she adds.

As of Saturday, the family had not yet decided when the funeral will take place. The mother says she doesn't know her son's girlfriend. But she says Terry informed her he was going out with his girlfriend Friday night for dinner and then planned to go to a nightclub. “He was my only son. I hope he is at peace now,” confides the mother.

Terry Lamarque was a kitesurfing enthusiast. He was also considered one of the best in the region in the not too distant past. Indeed, in 2017 and 2018, he won the gold medal during the Indian Ocean Star competition, which took place on Reunion Island.

He was also very popular as a kite-surfing operator. “Terry was very popular, his customers even cried when they called us,” confides his mother.

She says that it was her son who covered the costs of her medical treatment. Of English origin, she says she has lived for the last 40 years in Mauritius. “I'm going to miss him for life, I don't know how I'm going to survive without him. » Terry, she said, was a very caring person and was an exemplary son.
