    Majak Daw

    Information is sketchy, but Majak was retrieved from the Yarra after falling from the Bolte Bridge. He apparently stopped his car in the middle of the bridge and jumped. At this stage it is all speculation, but every news report has the Lifeline phone number on it.

    All over reddit, MFB launched their boat to drag him out of the water. "Non-life threatening injuries" (broken pelvis), stopped his car on the bridge to jump over the fence. Sad news.

    Geez, you just never know from the outside. I hope he's getting all the help and assistance he needs.
    AFLW Premiers 2018

    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.
    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed.
    And I said "Obie, I don't think I can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. "
    "He said, "Shut up, kid. Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    You just have to feel sorry for someone to get to the stage where they think something like this is the only option for them.

    I'm sure North will put an extensive support network around him

    Statement from NMFC

    The North Melbourne Football Club can confirm Majak Daw is recovering in hospital after an incident last night.

    At this stage the full extent of his injuries are unknown, however he is in a stable condition.


    The club is providing full support to Majak and his family and will give a further update when it is in a position to do so.


    We understand the level of interest but ask the privacy of the player, his family, teammates and staff at the club be respected at this sensitive time.
    This is very sad and just goes to show the mental issues effecting players.

    A former colleague of mine is a very good friend of Majak's. Majak was best man at his wedding. By all accounts he is an absolute gentleman and one of the nicest blokes you'll ever meet.

    I'm absolutely shattered at this news.

    Terribly sad. Wishing him all the very best, and anyone else who is struggling to find hope.

    Re: Majak Daw

    I had two quotes on bigfooty that I'll just quote here

    Some people are very good at bottling it up and keeping a facade that everything is fine. With these people you don't know anything is wrong until it's too late.
    Sadly it's the whole darkest before dawn thing; we often can't look at our issues and take the steps to help ourselves until they've come to a head and it's often too late. A suicide attempt five years ago gave me something to work towards never being like again and I'm a far more mentally healthy person these days as opposed to even two years ago but it's hard to know how bad it is until you hit rock bottom.

    Some people are able to keep up the facade and you'll have no idea something is wrong until it cracks. I hope that he recovers and gets the help that he needs.

    Re: Majak Daw

    This was posted by a teacher at my old school:

    About five years ago, I was walking out of 7/11 in Werribee. I had parked right in front of the door and Majak was walking in.

    He said hello, as always, he asked how I was and how the family was doing.

    I said to him, “Yeh, all good, there’s my young bloke”, pointing at my car.
    He replied, “Ahh Liam!”
    I responded, “No, that’s Eamonn.”
    The next minute blew me away.

    Maj turned to me and said “No way! He can’t be that big, can I say hello?”
    “Of course!”
    Maj spun on the spot, stuck his big head in the window and put his hand out. Eamonn took his hand and after a few short introductions commented...
    “Funny, your hand is the same colour as mine on the inside” while pointing at Majak’s palm.
    With the biggest smile Majak said,
    “Yes it is! We are more the same than most people think.” Eamonn was wide eyed and enamoured.

    They had a little chat, a bit of a giggle and Majak popped back up.
    Turning to me he said,
    “You have a pretty smart kid there Mr O’Mahoney, Sean, you know, Sir”

    It was to this day, my favourite moment of kid/man/dad/student/adult/friend. I learnt more in that one little moment than I can describe.

    Your impact, influence and immediacy is profound.

    Love you Maj. Heal well.
