Phillip Wong is one very heart broken dad that had to break terrible news to his three year old daughter that her baby sister has died.

In a post on Facebook over the weekend Phillip shared the terrible news that his wife Emmy had been involved in a car accident that has resulted in the death of their unborn child.

“Today I told Ada that her little sister died. She’s only 3 but she understands just fine.  We will not be using the space that Ada has made for her little sister.”

His post reads…

On Saturday my wife Emmy Pham was in a massive car crash. Our unborn daughter was crushed by the seatbelt and slowly dying inside Emmy. The placenta is mostly ripped up. Amniotic fluid is completely drained, mostly on the floor of the car. There is no hope of baby’s survival.

Emmy is hurt but will recover. She will be in hospital for a few weeks.

Emmy was at 19 weeks (1/2 way).

“Hamid”, the man who ran a red light and hit Emmy came to my house yesterday.

He found my address, but as we were in hospital, he asked the neighbor who gave him Emmy’s phone number.

He called Emmy and harassed us. He accused her of causing the accident, and demanded our insurance details. He was driving an unregistered car ie: No number plates. He further demanded to know what hospital Emmy was in.

On the phone his English his was barely enough to communicate (IETLS 2 at best). But the accusations are clear. “oh that’s not good” were his words of consolation.

The police said that he can speak English just fine when they interviewed him. I also heard him speaking clearly to police at the scene of the crash just before I had to get in the Ambulance.

We have been ‘encouraged to contact police’ if he shows up again. I don’t expect any action to be taken.

No witnesses have come forward as yet. Without evidence, this guy will get away with it. According to police there is a 50:50 chance it was his fault or Emmy’s fault, unless someone can describe what happened.

This is not about insurance. This is a criminal matter.

I am devastated.

Did you see this car crash? PLEASE call Glen Waverley police (03 9566 1555

Police are also appealing for witnesses.

Our thoughts are with them at this tragic time. Can you help?

  • I am so sorry for your loss, I hope your wife is ok and daughter and you are doing the best you can considering the awful circumstances


  • Sorry for your loss, losing a baby at any stage of the pregnancy is hard. The other driver can not contract you to harass you about what is going on. How he got your details would be interesting and as for the people who gave out the phone number this was wrong.
    Make sure your insurance company knows all the details about the accident and yes report this person if they contract you again. As an un licensed car they should be at fault for any damages. Keep at the police for answers as they sometimes put these things on the back burner and so do insurance companies if they can get out of paying.


  • How absolutely devastating for the whole family! We suffered a miscarriage about a month ago of our 8 week old and that was hard enough


  • This poor family. Just devastating all round. :-(


  • this is so sad, I’m so sorry for your loss


  • This is devastating. I hope Emmy recovers quickly and can return home to her family.


  • To me if he was driving an unregistered car then he shouldnt have been on the road.

    I would suggest that this couple contact a lawyer who will act for them and will take payment only if he gets a payout. He might not have money but if he has insurance then you are covered by his insurance but the lawyer will be able to give you more information. Dont just leave it and hope for the best. If he is trying to get out of things you need legal help.


  • I hope someone comes forward with some information. How devastating for the family :(


  • This is just awful. My heart goes out to this family during this difficult time. I hope someone has some information that can assist.


  • I sincerely hope someone comes forward with information. If this man is responsible, he needs to be punished.


  • Under Govt. law if there is an insurance claim involved at all it is illegal to contact the other driver at all. We were involved in an accident a few years ago. We were stationary at traffic lights which were on red, and a car ran into the back of us. We exchanged details and we reported it to the Police and Insurance Company. The other driver asked a lot of questions, was visibly shocked when I informed her that the car was insured in joint names and didn’t know who her insurance company was, that her husband fixed it. As our car was still roadworthy driveable we arranged with the Insurance Co. to delay having the repairs done becuase we were about to go away for a few days, the crash repair building was full, and we didn’t want to take a loan car that somebody might desperately need. We got a letter demanding to know why it cost so much and why we waited so long to have it repaired. It turned out their car wasn’t insured. Possibly because it already had a lot of dents. Unfortunately they had paid the bill only about an hour before Mother arrived at the Insurance Co. with the letter. Had she got there before the owner they would have had legal grounds to have him charged. PLEASE if you are harrassed again report it to your insurance company if your car is insured and you have lodged a claim.


  • How awful. Sorry for the loss of your unborn daughter. I hope some witnesses come forward


  • This is absolutely devastating, but I can’t help noticing that this seems to be a private Facebook post. Not sure they want this much attention.


  • I hope some witnesses will help out. So sad for the little girl! :-(


  • Such a horrible thing for any family to have a new life taken this way. What a hard thing to have to share with a 3 year old.
