Kiwi father dies on flight to Dubai at start of family holiday”

After six years with a foster family and almost two years on her own, through Hurricane Irma and who knows what else she faced, Hannah is back home with the Rodgers family.

A father-of-two has died during a flight to Dubai, where he was set to stop over ahead of a long-awaited holiday with his family.

The cause of his death is not yet known.

"They were excited and happy, but sadly, they didn't make it to the UK".

"Simon was my soulmate and he was an awesome, devoted, loving father to our young children".

Father-of-two Simon Gilby died on the way to a stopover in Dubai with his wife and children. "We will love Hannah and care for Hannah just as she did", said Scott Rodgers.

Mark Painter has established a Go Fund Me page in a bid to raise money to assist his daughter and her family in their hour of need.

Simon was living in Christchurch but was originally from the United Kingdom.

Gilby's mum has flown to Dubai to help the family while they make arrangements. The page has raised more than $3700 so far.

The family were shocked, devastated and grieving, a family friend wrote on Givealittle.

A family spokesperson said they were working through processes with the Dubai authorities now.

Scott contacted the family that took in Hannah and learned she had gotten out about two years ago and they saw Hannah get hit by a vehicle and run away. "Emirates offers honest condolences to the family and is providing them with support and assistance".
