A little boy orphaned after his parents were both killed in a horrific head-on crash in Brisbane, is still waiting for his parents to come home from work.

Sarah Mazi, 33, and Omer Mazi, 41, died after an 18-year-old drove his car onto the wrong side of the road at Moorooka on Sunday night. The teenager was also killed.

Ms Mazi’s brother, Stephen Furlong, said they still don’t know how they are going to tell the two-year-old that his parents aren’t at work.

“We still have to actually tell him that mum and dad aren’t coming home… I don’t know how we are going to tell him,” Ms Mazi’s brother, Stephen Furlong, told 7 News.

Witnesses have told police the teenager was driving erratically at high speed before his vehicle ended up on the wrong side of Ipswich Road about 8pm on Sunday.

Police said the teen hit another vehicle carrying five people, spinning it around, before ploughing into the car carrying the Mazis.

Our thoughts are with this poor little boy. So heartbreaking.

  • I hope his family have found a way of telling the 2 year old about the tragic loss of his parents in very simple terms. Hopefully they had the opportunity to get advice and support in doing so.


  • Terrible and totally heartbreaking !
    My heart goes out to the family and in specific to the son. There’s no easy way telling him his parents never come home again.


  • Stories like this absolutely break my heart, where innocent people just going about their daily life are so tragically killed at the hands of someone driving erratically. It was a makes me angry and I feel so much for this little child who now has no parents and has to live with that for the rest of his life So horrible


  • It’s a tragedy what can you say I feel really sorry for the families


  • Heartbreaking for them all. I hope his extended family is able to look after him now.


  • That poor family, the hurt will never end


  • What a tragedy. He’s very young and understanding the meaning of death is probably beyond his possibilities. Little one. :-(


  • However they tell him, I doubt he’ll really understand.
