The family of a man who died months after breaking his neck in a car crash are shocked by his sudden demise.
Jeffrey Eric Srhoj​​, 48, of Awanui, died in Middlemore Hospital's spinal unit on Saturday after being injured in a crash in the Far North on January 28.
The accident near Houhora left him stranded on the roadside for five-and-a-half hours with a broken neck, but he was getting used to communicating with his eyes, by spelling out words using a coloured spelling board, before he died.

Water restrictions applied to the Council’s Kaitāia water supply are being lifted from today in time for the Easter long weekend.
The Awanui River has responded well to this week’s rainfall with levels now holding well above minimum consent levels set by Northland Regional Council. In response, the Far North District Council is removing Level 2 water restrictions banning the use of irrigation systems and sprinklers for households and businesses connected to the Kaitāia supply.
General Manager – Infrastructure and Asset Management, Andy Finch, says a substantial dump of autumn rain across Northland this week has seen water flows in the Awanui River stabilise.
This means that all eight Council water supplies are now on Level 1. This applies no limit to water use, although customers should always use water sensibly.
