Good morning Zambia …AARON SIMUTOWE DIES IN USA
EX-ZAMBIA U-20 wingback Aaron Simutowe has died.
Simutowe, 38, was pronounced dead at St. Vincent Hospital in Connecticut, USA after being run over by two cars.
The son of the late Zambia midfielder and veteran coach Boniface trekked to the USA over 15 years ago for a professional career and later settled in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
Local reports in the North Eastern state indicate that Simutowe met his fate at the intersection of Park Avenue and Olive Street at 8:44 pm local time on Saturday.
“He was pinned down under a car. The driver and 3 passages all fled the scene on foot.
“Firefighters worked feverishly to free him from under the car – they succeeded and traveled with him in the ambulance to St. Vincent’s Hospital continuing CPR on him. He died at the hospital,” Doing It Local, a Connecticut news outlet, reports.
Simutowe played for Zamsure, Profund Warriors (now NAPSA Stars), Zanaco and Zambia U-20 class of 1999.
I greet u all with a heavy heart. I dont even know where to begin from. It sounds outdated news to your ears because we have all or almost everyone heard the passing on of Aaron simutowe who was hit by two vehicles in USA, connecticut. The mentioned man was my beloved uncle( mums brother). His death has left us broken!!
it came as a rude shock and considering the way in which he died is so painful. Ladies /gents am humbly begging you to lay a helping hand in bringing his body back to zambia so we can see him for the last time. We have contacted relevant authorities and bring his body back is costly. We have sat down as a family to put our heads together and we are no where close to the amount mentioned to fly his remains back to zambia. Its for this reason that am begging you sincerely to help in every little way that you can. Your help will go a long way and will help us fly his body back home. May God bless you abundantly even as you help us in trying to bring him back home to see his face for the last time. Have a blessed day. Contact 0962949477
