Ben 2

 

I am deeply saddened to hear that that beautiful man Ben French, co-owner of the Eat No Evil foodtruck has died.

Ben had a terrible scooter accident on Koh Samui in Thailand and was flown to Perth after a huge crowd funding effort, but sadly to no avail.

Ben was a really nice guy with always a smile on his face and foodies around town will mourn for him for a very long time.

My sympathies are with Ben’s family and friends. May he rest in peace and cook up a storm in heaven!

Great food, great sunset at the river and port and also the very important fundraiser for EAT NO EVIL co-owner Ben French who had a horrible life threatening accidents in Thailand and needs our financial help.

TERRIBLE ACCIDENT FOR EAT NO EVIL OWNER

Posted in accidents, city of fremantle, food, markets, Uncategorized by freoview on March 30, 2018

 

 

Terrible news about one of Fremantle’s nice guys Ben French of the Eat No Evil foodstall fame many know from the Under the Bridge Foodtrucks, Bathers Beach market, etc..

Benjamin ventured to Thailand on what was meant to be a break from reality.
When suddenly things turned for the worst. On the 28th of March 2018 Benjamin was involved in an accident which has now lead to the fight for survival. With extensive and life threatening injuries, Ben is currently in a critical condition.

Some of his current injuries include severe brain trauma, broken spine, punctured lungs, broken ribs, many broken bones throughout his body and severe damage to his skull. Several brain surgeries and blood transfusions have already taken place in order to stabilise his condition before the rest of his injuries can be attended to and assessed properly, but as his condition is extremely critical the hospital costs are continuing to rise – currently at $44 000 on day 2.

Ben is currently in a coma and alongside the extent of his injuries, the doctors have given us a time frame of 2 weeks to 3 months of ongoing hospital treatment for small gains to take place.

This page has been organised in hopes to help fundraise enough money to partially cover his hospital treatments. With positivity and blessings we hope to see his condition stabilise, where he can return to his hometown here in Perth and be surrounded by his family and friends with the continual care he requires. We are extending all helping hands in this time of need and are hopeful that you can find it within you to donate anything possible to help us reach the target. Thank you in advance to everyone who has extended their generosity. Please keep Benjamin in your thoughts and prayers.

If you can help financially please go to the Gofundme page:

Please share this information, so that we can get a lot of funding to help Ben!!! Thank you.

FREO SOUTH MOLE PARKING PROBLEMS

Posted in cars, city of fremantle, fremantle ports, Uncategorized by freoview on August 21, 2017

Fremantle’s perceived parking problems took on a whole new meaning when the driver of this car ‘parked’ his/her vehicle rather awkwardly on the South Mole on Sunday night.

I am a day late reporting this, as yesterday was so hectic that I did not have the time to follow my daily routine of checking out what goes on in port.

Very remiss of me, so please don’t cancel your subscriptions and multi-million dollar advertising campaigns. ; >)

NORTH FREO STORM WALL COLLAPSE

A woman was seriously injured in North Fremantle this afternoon when part of a wall at the Matilda Bay Brewery collapsed on top of her car, that was parked to the side of the building in Coventry Parade.

It appears the strong wind caused the brick rubble to fell down from the three-storey building at Stirling Highway.

Emergency services attended the scene and there are concerns that more of the wall might collapse.

FREO PUB DEATH NO BIG DEAL?

S&A

 

We live in strange times, where respect for fellow humans and property are often just a second thought, if at all.

I was quite surprised to see it is business as usual at the Fremantle Sail&Anchor pub this Sunday, after a young man fell from their balcony last evening at 8.30 and died in Fiona Stanley Hospital last night.

I am not blaming anyone for the accident, but I wonder why the Sail&Anchor does not show more respect for the dead man and his family by closing the pub for a day.

MAN FALLS FROM SAIL&ANCHOR BALCONY

Posted in accidents, alcohol, city of fremantle, drinking, Uncategorized by freoview on July 16, 2017

 

A West Perth man died in hospital last night after falling from a balcony at the Fremantle Sail&Anchor pub.

He fell through the plastic weather protection that surrounds the first floor verandah to the ground of South Terrace around 8.30 pm.

People who were out and about in Fremantle last night were shocked that the Sail&Anchor remained open after the accident. Many believed it should have closed after the incident.

WEST END CAR ACCIDENT

Posted in accidents, cars, city of fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on June 8, 2017

 

 

A lot of people like the modern creative new Mediterranean Shipping Company building in Fremantle’s Cliff Street, but this motorist clearly went for a too close-up look of the Slavin Architects designed building this Thursday morning.

St John’s ambulance and the fire brigade attended the scene.

GRAIN TRUCK OVERTURNS IN FREMANTLE

Posted in city of fremantle, freight, fremantle ports, Uncategorized by freoview on May 25, 2017

A large 12-wheel grain truck overturned this morning in Fremantle on its way to Fremantle Port at the notorious intersection of High Street and Stirling Hiwhway.

Traffic was diverted for many hours as two big tow trucks tried to get the grain vehicle back on its wheels.

The intersection has been overdue for an upgrade and State Government has held community sessions, but nothing has been done to improve the intersection, and that needs to be done with priority now by the new Labor government which stopped the Perth Freight Link.
