Nanny tells of fatal hit
THE nanny who was taking care of six-year-old Ryan Leo when he was fatally struck by a car has broken down at his inquest, saying she told him to “wait”.
Saiyun Shan broke into inconsolable sobs as she described pulling up opposite the boy’s taekwondo school in Hurstville in Sydney’s south on July 28 last year.
“When I stopped there, Ryan just opened the door and I said to Ryan, wait. I said ‘don’t run, don’t run’,” Ms Shan told Glebe Coroner’s Court. “I went around and I couldn’t see Ryan and I could hear a bang,” she said. “The vehicle kept driving and I could see Ryan on the road. I was shocked.” The inquest continues.
