A week after the tragic incident, Andries' distraught mother, Natasha said:

“He was leaning on my chest and gripping my hand, and that was the last time I felt his hold on me. His hand was still warm, but his feet were already cold. I was praying the whole time the car was rushing to the hospital, it was like the Fast and the Furious."

She said Andries' death was painful to the family.

"You can feel the void he left in the house. Oshwin was my everything. The reality that he is gone is yet to kick in.”
