‘Kind’ girl hit by car loses fight for life

The New Zealand Herald - - News - Her­ald — Emma Rus­sell

A 28-year-old Filipino stu­dent who “took a chance for a bet­ter life in New Zealand” has died four days af­ter be­ing struck by a car at an in­ter­sec­tion in Christchurch.

A Givealit­tle page was set up for Han­nah Ramoso in her fight for sur­vival. On Satur­day, her older brother up­dated the page say­ing she had passed away.

“She wasn’t able to sur­vive the se­vere brain in­juries from the crash. Still, our fam­ily be­lieves that she is at peace now with the Lord,” Ramoso’s brother Glen Ramoso said.

A po­lice spokes­woman con­firmed a woman died in hos­pi­tal fol­low­ing Mon­day’s crash. “She passed away at 11pm on Fri­day.”

The crash at the in­ter­sec­tion of Fitzger­ald Ave and Gloucester St hap­pened shortly be­fore 9am.

Ramoso was one of three pedes­tri­ans hit by the car. She was taken to Christchurch Hos­pi­tal with crit­i­cal in­juries while the other two suf­fered mi­nor to mod­er­ate in­juries.

Glen told the his sis­ter cared for the whole fam­ily es­pe­cially her niece and nephew.

Ramoso was tak­ing culi­nary stud­ies at Kiwi In­sti­tute of Train­ing and Ed­u­ca­tion and hoped to one day be “the best chef out there”.

Friend An­gelique Ramos said Ramoso had only re­cently moved to New Zealand. “She is a kind and pas­sion­ate girl and we are ab­so­lutely dev­as­tated.” She said some of the $15,000 raised was used to bring Ramoso’s mother and sis­ter to her bed­side.
