Earlier this week, a helicopter disaster on the Gold Coast claimed the life of a Sydney man’s wife. He claims his son is currently on life support and “needs all the prayers he can receive.”

Vanessa Tadros, 36, was murdered on Monday when two Sea World tour helicopters collided as her husband Simon Tadros watched in horror.

Nicholas, the couple’s 10-year-old son, was among the three badly injured survivors of the collision that left four people dead.

Mr. Tadros requested prayers for his kid on social media as he battles for his life at Gold Coast University Hospital.

“I ask everyone to pray for the little man. He is on life support in a critical condition,” Mr Tadros wrote.

“May God pull him back with me and make a good recovery.”

A nine-year-old kid who was also on the flight is fighting for his life in a Gold Coast hospital.

Authorities said on Wednesday afternoon that four more patients are still in stable condition at the hospital.

Ms. Tadros was a fashionista and event coordinator who created elaborate wedding, christening, and birthday displays for Western Sydney families.

Her husband alerted consumers of his wife’s passing by posting on her company page.

“Vee Vee Creations will be closing down,” he wrote.

“I will be going through Vanessa’s records to see which events have to be refunded or cancelled.

“I’m sorry to anyone that this has inconvenienced.”

Social media is flooded with condolences for the “well respected” Glenmore Park mother.

Ms. Tadros is referred to be a beloved mother and friend in an online campaign established up for the family by friend Rochelle Fajloun.

“We are praying for a miracle that our Nicky, (as he is playfully known) can be brought back to his grief-stricken father Simon,” she wrote.

“If by God’s grace Nicky survives his catastrophic injuries, he will have an intense and protracted recovery period.

“Simon distressingly witnessed the accident unfold and is totally shattered.”

Ms Tadros’ friends and fellow parishioners at the St John the Beloved Youth church in Mr Druitt also paid tribute on social media.

“If you knew her, you were blessed. There was not a sweeter soul around. Her son Nicky has a piece of her soul. Pray for him,” Chhaya Cignarella wrote.

Samuel Gobraiel, who resides close to the Tadros’ Glemore Park residence, called them “an excellent family.”

“Vanessa was a wonderful person, very selfless person. Always smiling,” he said.

He said the family had been looking forward to their Queensland holiday.

“It’s quite devastatingly sad that this is how it turned out for them,” he said.

British couple Diane Hughes, 57, and Ronald Hughes, 65, were also killed in the crash, as was pilot Ashley Jenkinson.

For his work in March 2022, when flood victims in Ballina needed supplies delivered by helicopter, Mr. Jenkinson has received recognition.

Winnie De Silva, 33, and her nine-year-old son Leon from Geelong were riding in the same helicopter as them when it took off from Sea World.

Both of them suffered critical wounds.

It will be shuttered till further notice, according to Sea World Helicopters. The organisation has halted online reservations.

“Please bear with us during this very difficult time as we process your refund,” the website read.

Investigations are still ongoing to determine what led to the two helicopters colliding at around 2:00 pm.

According to Australian Transport Safety Bureau Chief Commissioner Angus Mitchell, the tragedy occurred while one helicopter carrying seven people was taking off and another helicopter carrying six people was making a landing.

The landing helicopter’s front portion sustained “severe damage” when the helicopter’s primary rotors collided with the helicopter taking off.

Tanya Davies, a member of parliament for Western Sydney, expressed her shock at learning that one of the victims was a local.

“So often tragedies like these seem so far away from us, but this devastating accident brings to home how precious and fragile life can be,” she wrote on social media.
