Boy, aged 7, dies days after bike accident that also claimed life of Russian man

Seven-year-old Sergios Arzoumanidis died on Tuesday evening nine days after being involved in a Limassol road accident that claimed the life of a 43-year-old Russian man.

Arzoumanidis, of Greek nationality, was seriously injured after Dmitrii Polishchuk lost control of the large three-wheeler motorcycle he was driving in the tourist area of Yermasoyia. He died in hospital a few hours later.

The boy, who suffered serious head injuries, was first taken to Limassol General Hospital and then transferred to Nicosia’s Makarion Hospital.

In circumstances under investigation, Polishchuk lost control and crashed forcefully into a house wall.

According to Limassol police officers at the scene, neither of the two passengers wore a crash helmet.

It is believed the bike hit the pavement on a left turn, causing the trike to overturn with both passengers hitting the asphalt.
