Dad in desperate bid to save bike rider son

A FATHER had the heartbreaking task of trying to revive his 32-year-old son killed in a motocross accident on his birthday.

The Miles man was riding with two friends on a family member's property on Matthews Rd at Drillham, west of Miles.

Police said it appeared the man's bike hit a small washout which caused him to fall from the motorbike about 11.30am on Saturday.

He was wearing a helmet but sustained severe upper body injuries and suspected spinal injuries.

His friends and his father desperately tried to save him but he was unable to be revived.

The man's father had been at a house on the property.

"They did everything possible as far as first aid goes, but it was impossible to save him," a police spokesman said.

Paramedics took the man to the Miles Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police will prepare a report for the Coroner.

The man was an experienced rider and turned 32 on Saturday.
