A NSW police officer is in shock after being called to a fatal car crash and discovering his worst nightmare.
Sergeant Steven Underhill of Richmond Police arrived at the scene of an accident to find his four-year-old daughter had been killed in the collision. His two-year-old daughter was critically injured.
“He was speechless. He was so shocked and upset. He wanted to know what had happened,” witness Tazman Currie told The Courier-Mail. “He tried desperately to help but was suffering shock”, Ms Currie said.
The two-year-old girl was flown to Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, in Brisbane, where her condition had improved on Sunday morning.
The children’s 18-year-old babysitter received minor injuries. “She didn’t really care about herself. She wanted the girls to be OK,” Ms Currie said.
Our hearts go out to the family. Such a shocking story so close to Christmas.
