All Blacks legend’s mother tragically dies in ‘freak accident’

Police and WorkSafe are making inquiries into the death of former All Blacks hooker Andrew Hore’s mother, who died in a “freak accident” over the weekend.

Sue Hore passed away after falling off a motorbike while on the family’s farm near Patearoa on Saturday.

Father Jim told stuff.co.nz:   “She just fell out of the bike, I don’t know whether she took a turn or not, (there were) no words or anything.

“She didn’t even move, didn’t even make a noise … she just died instantly.

“I had poor cellphone coverage, I didn’t want to leave her lying by herself so I just battled it out.”

The motorbike was stationary at the time of the incident, he said.

Police and WorkSafe NZ are making inquiries into her death.
