Drunk Driver Runs Over Lebanese Kids in Sydney, Kills Four

A drunk driver ran his four-wheel driver over a group of Lebanese children in Sydney killing four of them. 

Two sisters, their brother and a cousin were killed while three others were seriously injured, Australian and Lebanese authorities said on Sunday.

The 29-year-old driver who was not named should stand trial on Sunday facing 20 charges, including manslaughter and high-range drink driving following the incident late Saturday in the Oatlands suburb of western Sydney, according to AFP.

The children were on a footpath when the four-wheel drive struck them.

Three girls aged 8 to 12 and a 13-year-old boy died at the scene, while two other girls and a boy were injured and taken to hospital, where they were in a stable condition on Sunday, police said.

The dead included two sisters and their brother.

Daniel and Leila Abdallah has lost 3 of their children in this tragedy.

“Yesterday I lost three of my children. I had a cousin, Bridget, she lost her daughter as well,” Daniel Abdallah told reporters on Sunday morning.

“I’m numb, probably that’s how I feel at the moment,” he stressed.

“All I just want to say is, please, drivers be careful. These kids were just walking innocently, enjoying each others’ company and this morning I woke up, I have lost three kids.”
