Facebook tributes to 16-year-old Daniel Chong after fatal motorcycle accident
SHOCKED friends and family have paid tribute to a Wirral teenager who was killed in a motorbike accident at the weekend.
Daniel Chong died on Sunday after he came off an off-road scrambler motorbike and hit a lamppost in Riverview Road, Bromborough.
He was taken to hospital by ambulance but was later pronounced dead.
Following the tragedy, police cordoned off the area and an investigation was launched.
Now the youngster’s friends have left heartfelt messages on his Facebook page to pay their respects.
One close friend said: “You will be missed more than you will ever know, you were a friend that I was lucky to have. God bless mate R.I.P.”
And a heartbroken family member posted: “Rest in peace Danny, you’re a cousin I’ll never forget, we had so many great memories when we were little that I can remember! No-one deserves this especially not you, you'll never be forgotten by anyone..we all love you.”
A memorial page was also set up for the Wallasey School pupil on the social networking site where more than 3,000 people have so far paid their respects.
One message read: “Can’t believe you are gone, had the best times of my life with you, mate. Got so many good times with you, hopefully one day we can meet up again and talk about them. Always thinking about you every minute of the day. Love you, mate.”
Following the outpouring of support, Daniel’s mum Lynne thanked people for their thoughts.
She wrote: “Daniel son, I know you will be looking at all the messages tributes and flowers that have been left purely because you are special to so many people. People we don't even know are leaving flowers and messages here and in the hut and on the lamppost which I hate to mention (sorry, son).
“On behalf of Lewis, Daniel and myself thank you so much for all your good wishes. They have brought me great comfort and I read them all. RIP Daniel my darling boy. I know you are here and I can feel you all around me. Sleep well baby.”
Floral tributes were also left at the scene where the incident happened, with one card reading: “You were only around for a short time but you made a mark on everybody you met, lad.
“My thoughts are with your mum and Lewy. Sleep well, lad.”
Daniel’s friends are now planning a special event in Sandbrook Park, Moreton on Sunday night to set off sky lanterns in memory of the teenager.
It is believed that money will be collected to be donated to the family.
