A post Mortem Examina-tion (PME) is expected to be conducted today on the body of Wayne Giddings who died on Monday following an accident at Goedverwagting Railway Embankment Road, East Coast Demerara (ECD).

According to reports, Giddings, 29, of 69 Spa-rendaam Housing Scheme, ECD died moments after he was taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPH). Police said that Giddings rode his bicycle from behind a mini-bus and into the pathway of an oncoming vehicle when he was struck down.

However, the woman said her neighbour assured her that it appeared her husband would survive the accident.
