Mum’s tribute to son, 20, who died in e-scooter crash after girlfriend posted pic of them holding hands in hospital beds
A MUM has paid tribute to her "beautiful" son, 20, after his death in a horrific e-scooter crash.
Shakur Pinnock's girlfriend shared a photo of the couple holding hands in their hospital beds after the smash in Wolverhampton.
Tragically, Shakur, who was in intensive care at the time the image was taken, later died of his injuries.
He had been airlifted to hospital in Birmingham after a collision involving a Volkswagen Golf on Saturday, June 12.
Shakur suffered a fractured skull, severed arteries, a broken jaw and punctured lungs.
His partner Chanté Hoosang – a passenger on the scooter at the time of the crash – was also seriously hurt.
In a heartbreaking post on Facebook, Shakur's mum Celine Fraser-Pinnock said he died in hospital on Friday afternoon, Birmingham Live reports.
She said: "I miss you so much. My beautiful, gorgeous baby.
"He succumbed to his injuries and passed away at 3.48pm."
Celine, 56, previously said medics had discussed turning off Shakur's life support as they had done "all they could do".
And she told of how she begged doctors to keep machines on to give her son "a bit more time to heal".
Chanté, 19, was taken to see Shakur in her hospital bed earlier this week so she could hold his hand.
Her mum said today: "I have no words, sorry.
"Pray for Chanté's and the family's strength."
A spokesperson for University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust said: "The trust extends its deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of Shakur Pinnock.
"Our thoughts are with them at this very sad time."
Cops with West Midlands Police have called for anyone who saw the crash to come forward.
Those with dashcam footage are also urged to speak to officers by calling 101, quoting log 2690 of June 12.
