4WD crash: Witness comforted girl as she died
A woman who ran onto the scene moments after four children were killed in the Oatlands tragedy has recalled the traumatic sight she came across.
Margret Primc said she was able to see across Oatlands Golf Course to the Bettington Road scene where a 4WD had crashed through a fence shortly before 8pm on Saturday.
Ms Primc ran out to the scene and immediately came across Angelina Abdallah, 12, who was unconscious on the ground.
She told the Daily Mail she was performing CPR on the girl and couldn't bear to leave her when paramedics came up to check her vitals.
"They pronounced her dead but there were injured kids everywhere so they had to try to help them," she said.
"I thought 'I can't leave you darling', so I stayed with her for a while like a mother.
"I just sat there for a while and stroked her hair and kissed her on the forehead, and tidied her top a bit because it had ridden up."
She added: "Later that night I saw the mother and she just said: 'Thank you, I couldn't bare to go near her'."
Another witness, who knew the Abdallah family, said it was the "stuff of nightmares".
"You don't want to know what I saw, you really don't. It's the stuff of nightmares.
"We just can't believe it. They are the last people this deserved to happen to."
Samuel William Davidson, 29, has been in jail since the horrific incident in Sydney's northwest suburb of Oatlands.
Hundreds of people gathered at the Oatlands crash site on Monday night to lay flowers and show support for the grieving families, according to media reports.
The fatal crash has sparked a renewed push for a road rules overhaul in NSW.
The parents of the alleged drunk driver, who has been accused of hitting seven kids with his car on Saturday night, killing four, delivered a tearful apology to the grieving families last night.
Through tears, Mr Davidson's father Allan told 9 News the family had "effectively" lost their son.
"We are no stranger to grief. We lost our daughter 10 years ago. And now effectively we've lost our son," he said.
"Those families have lost their children. No words can help them. I'm so sorry to them."
Mr Davidson is facing years in jail for his alleged crimes. His father said his son was well aware of what had happened.
"He's so sorry. He cannot believe what happened," Allan said.
"He has a good heart and I'm sure he's just as devastated as we are and understands the consequences for his actions. We won't be seeing him for many years I'm sure."
Leila Geagea Abdallah, who lost Anthony, 13, Angelina, 12, and Sienna Abdallah, 9, returned to the scene on Monday morning.
She told reporters she doesn't hate the driver, who is alleged to have been three times over the limit when he mounted a kerb with his ute and struck seven children.
"The guy, I know he was (allegedly) drunk, driving on this street. Right now I can't hate him. I don't want to see him, (but) I don't hate him," she said.
"I think in my heart, I forgive him, but I want the court to be fair. It's all about fairness. I'm not going to hate him, because that's not who we are."
She added she felt like nothing had been real in the two days since the incident.
"To be fully honest with you, it feels very unreal, I still don't feel it's true, I feel that they are still with me - I'm still waiting for them to come home," she said.
The fourth victim has been named as 11-year-old Veronique Sakr - a cousin of the other victims.
Overnight, Veronique's family released a statement paying tribute to their "beautiful girl".
"We are devastated by the tragic and senseless loss of our beautiful girl, Veronique," her family wrote.
"Words cannot describe the pain we feel for all the families impacted by this tragedy.
"Veronique was a vibrant 11-year-old girl, full of life, love and had a maturity well beyond her young years.
"Veronique brought us all such joy and will be forever remembered. Veronique will remain in our hearts always."
Mr Davidson was arrested after returning a positive roadside breath test result and allegedly recorded a blood alcohol reading of 0.15.
He has been charged with 20 offences including four counts of manslaughter, dangerous driving occasioning death and grievous bodily harm, negligent driving and drink-driving.
His case was on Sunday heard at Parramatta Bail Court.
He did not appear in court and did not apply for bail, which was formally refused by Magistrate John McIntosh.
Mr Davidson is scheduled to return to Parramatta Local Court on April 2.
