A 42-year-old married father of two has been identified as the man who was crushed to death in a freak accident at the drive-thru window of a Vancouver McDonald’s restaurant.
Tony Eyles was grabbing breakfast around 5:30 a.m. at the fast-food eatery on Tuesday when he dropped his bank card and got out to retrieve it — only to be pinned against the building by his car, News 1130 radio reported.
He was on his way to work at the time.
Eyles died just a few weeks short of his ninth wedding anniversary, leaving behind two children, ages eight and six, the outlet said.
“He’s just the perfect dad, the perfect husband” Eyles brother-in-law, Neal Pender, told the station. “Unfortunately [my newborn] never got to meet Tony. Tony would have adored that kid and he would have adored Tony, too.”
