Large Check Presented to Family who Lost Baby in Car Crash

It was Friday March 11, the family and loved ones of 11-month-old Taz Boyles’ lives completely changed forever, when the infant died after a car he was riding in accidentally plunged into the
sea by Shark Hole Hill, Hamilton Parish.

Taz’s mother Carmeka Millett told PLP Senator Lindsay Simmons that she wishes there was a way that she could possibly thank everyone who helped try and save her son’s life.

Keeping that in mind, Senator Simmons called the Police Service, Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service and workers from Works & Engineering together so that Ms. Millett could personally
thank them last night To raise money for the family, Rosa’s Cantina sold special drinks in Taz’s memory, named after
the baby too.

Sales for the drink reached $7,000 and change and all the money was given to the family this evening, in the form of a check.

Ms. Simmons said that watching the strength of the Millett-Boyles family after such a tragic event has changed the way that she thinks about aspects of her own life.

Ms. Millett told TNN that the strength to carry on comes from God above, as well as her family and friendsas well as her support network.

She has nothing but forgiveness in her heart for Taz’s godmother, who tried everything in her power to get him out of the car alive.

“ At the end of the day, everything is about forgiveness,” she said.
She knew that there would be a check presentation to her and her family last night, she had no idea that it would surpass $7000. The amount left her speechless.
