Our 17-month-old baby boy died when a relative's sport utility vehicle backed over him Friday, October 1, 2010 in Makaha. He was struck as the Toyota Highlander was reversing out of the carport on Kepue Street at about 7:45 a.m. The driver, 49, was an aunt who also lived at the house. His death was the third on Oahu that year involving a toddler who had been run over by a reversing vehicle in a residential driveway.
Tyrell Ioane Niko age 1, of Waianae, HI, was born on February 2, 2009 in Honolulu, HI. Tyrell was always a Happy Go Lucky Kid, who always loved to play with his two brothers. This boy had so much character, wit & charisma in him. He was like one step ahead of everybody since he was born and with a very quick tempo to it. He was a son to everyone, his life was short & sweet but has touched so many hearts & lives. May all the good memories of our beloved Tyrell live in our hearts forever.
