Max Knight Wiki – Max Knight Biography
Max Knight succumbed to his injuries on Monday after his motorcycle caught fire on his family’s property in Murphy’s Creek in southern Queensland on Sunday.
Max was riding his Yamaha Peewee 50 motorcycle on Father’s Day morning when his father, Harley, stopped to refuel his tank with a jerrycan. Tragically a fire broke out, possibly due to the engine being too hot, and both were seriously injured. Max was airlifted to Queensland Children’s Hospital, where he died from his injuries the following day with his father still in hospital and unaware of the death of his son. His mother, Emma Whybird, revealed in a series of heartbreaking tributes on Facebook that she hugged him “as he passed away”. ‘My beautiful baby, I am going to miss your beautiful smile, your precious hugs, your goodnight kisses, your warm touch,’ she wrote. ‘It will never be the same without you, Max. My heart hurts so much for not holding you to sleep and reading you your favorite books. ‘I wish you could come back to me, my precious boy.
Max Knight was 5 years old.
Max, you will always be in mom and dad’s lives forever. “We love you very much, my dear little Max, the Knight’s rider.” Harley suffered burns to approximately 40 percent of his body, primarily his face, chest and arms. He remains in an induced coma at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital while doctors wait for his condition to stabilize enough for surgery. He won’t find out about the death of his five-year-old son until he is woken up, which is expected to be Thursday or Friday. Ms Whybird said her “heart ached” thinking about that conversation. Max’s grandfather, Tennocy Knight, described his grandson as “a good kid.” ‘He lived life to the fullest, like his father. “It’s been a really tough day for us and we’re just trying to come to terms with the loss,” he told the Toowoomba Chronicle on Monday. “The hardest thing for us as a family was to sit by his bed and do nothing.” She described Max and Harley as a close father and son duo. “Motorbikes were their life, they loved riding together and also fishing,” Mr Knight said.
