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.
