Second chance: Chose survived after a fatal crash

Two years ago, Phadza Chose was the only survivor of a fatal accident that claimed four teenage lives. The Young Zebras star has seen his career thrive and has helped Holy Ghost gain promotion to the Premier League. Chose is now eyeing a move to Europe, reports Mmegi Sport Correspondent, KABELO BORANABI

It was supposed to be another night out with friends but it ended with four teenagers (three boys and a girl) losing their lives in a car accident during the wee hours of March 28, 2020. Chose was one of five passengers in a Toyota RunX that collided with a Toyota Land Cruiser at the Mmopane junction early Saturday morning. Then aged just 17, he was rushed to Bokamoso Private Hospital where he slipped into a coma resulting from head injuries. Chose was, however, released the next day to face the reality that he had lost four of his ‘buddies’ while his football career faced a possible threat.

The youngster, despite leaving the scene physically unharmed, had to seek therapy to deal with the trauma.
