The survivor of the fatal car crash which occurred on Horseshoe Bay hill on Tuesday night contacted Magnetic Times today. Her name is Terrilea Tsounias and she wanted to make a very sincere thank you to all who helped her and her fianc
While trying to contain her deep sadness and tears, Terrilea said, "I really really appreciate everybody's help at the accident site. That they really cared so much - I really want to thank them so much. The care and attention they showed was just fantastic. If Eric was here too I know he would want to thank them as well."
Terrilea is now out of hospital and recovering from the accident. "I was just banged up. I have a broken arm, Im black and blue with whiplash" she said.
Terrilea and Eric had only arrived on Magnetic Island that morning. "We'd picked up the moke that morning, went for a fish, looked around the Island and were having a lovely day. We were heading back to our unit when the accident happened," she said.
A memorial service will be held for Eric at Morley's Funerals in Townsville at 11am on Tuesday 26th.
