He died, aged 25 years, on 5 October 1999 in the Ladbroke Grove rail disaster, having come to the UK about three months earlier. He was travelling aboard the 8.06am Thames Trains Turbo train from Paddington to Bedwyn, Wiltshire, when it collided with the 6.03am First Great Western High Speed Train from Cheltenham Spa to Paddington at Ladbroke Grove. At the subsequent inquest it was recorded that he died from injuries to his head, chest and abdomen.
