‘Kind’ girl hit by car loses fight for life
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.
