The toddler orphaned after both parents die in freak tragedy…Posted: February 22, 2011
Two weeks ago the tragic real life story of how little Morgan’s life was turned upside down was covered by virtually every national newspaper.
Morgan’s parents, Terri-Ann Barnett, 24 and Tom Matts, 29 had just dropped Morgan off at nursery in Hereford and were on the pavement walking home when the unthinkable happened.
A lorry crashed into a low bridge and its load of heavy wooden joists crashed down on them.
Tom died instantly and Terri-Ann shortly after. Needless to say the family are devastated especially as Morgan, just 18 months old, has been left an orphan.
Needless to say, this awful story has attracted a lot of media interest and I will be helping them to deal with that.
Meanwhile, a trust fund has been set up by Terri-Ann’s employers. If you would like to make a donation – even a tiny amount the family will be grateful for! – here are the details: Morgan Matts Fund, HSBC. Sort code: 402411, account number 92028654.
The family also wishes to thank the Midlands Air Ambulance service, which is a charity that runs on donations. The ambulance service gave them valuable time to say goodbye to Terri-Ann in hospital.
