The Routine Turned Tragic

According to a report by Mothership; Zara, accompanied by her younger sister and the family’s helper, was on her way home from school, crossing Institution Hill in River Valley.

Humming a song, Zara’s innocent routine took a devastating turn when she was struck by a car, despite the desperate screams of their helper, who was just two steps behind, urging the driver to stop.
