Father Brad C. * († 40), mother Hulia and children Radian (12) and Alina (11) spent their vacation in early March on Hyams Beach off the south coast of New South Wales, Australia.
When the family posed for a selfie at sea she had no idea it would be the last picture they would have together. In the foreground, a Sydney family laughs as they look at the camera, and in the background gray clouds are seen over the turbulent sea. A few hours later, the 40-year-old died.
Rayton and Alina went into the water to cool off. But then it happened: a violent wave grabbed two children and dragged them into the open sea, local media reports. Hearing her scream Brad immediately ran over and jumped into the water. With the last force, he was able to bring his son and daughter safely. But he could not save his life. He himself died in the flood.
“He was always kind, humble and kind.”
Hulya’s mother had a heart attack and was rushed to hospital. Unbelievable: Shortly after her release, she received the news that her father had also died.
Brad’s brother Scott c. She is currently launching a fundraising campaign for her severely affected family. “Brad was always nice, humble and gentle,” he writes there. “Hulya, Rayton and Alina face a future without him. Their lives changed in the most painful ways in an instant.”
A donation target of A $ 20,000 equivalent of 13,000 francs has been set. It has been surpassed for a long time. Meanwhile, about A $ 85,000 has been raised, equivalent to about 60,000 francs. (sst)
