“Skateboarding took a massive unexpected hit late last week, with the sad and untimely passing of Lewis Marnell.
Lewis’ mother issued the following statement over the weekend:
“FYI and to clear up any quandries relating to Lewis’ sad & untimely passing, he had a massive hypoglycemic reaction which did not respond to ingested glucose. He was at home and was discovered by his wife around 6.30 on Friday night Melb time. It was not possible to resuscitate him and we are all still trying to come to terms with this tragedy. We ask everybody to send out thoughts and prayers of love and comfort. Please keep his memory alive and let this not be a terrible waste.” ”
