I wish we could have saved him at the scene but he could not be revived. The little we can do now is to help his family and hope he can RIP.

Many would have seen in the news of the shocking and almost inconceivable death of Mr Zhengwen Alan Hu on Monday the 28th of January. He was the third car waiting at a Botany Downs intersection when a fourth car struck at highspeed and shunted forward all three cars. His seat belt and airbags could not save him. It's a case of being at the wrong place at the wrong time and a lot of what ifs.

The tragedy does not end here.

Alan leaves behind his devoted wife and two young daughters aged 8 and 11. They went from a perfectly happy, health family to utter devastation in the blink of an eye. Their lives have been torn apart and it's hard to imagine how long and arduous the journey to recovery will be. On top of sorrow of losing her husband and their dad, they are now in financial hardship from the loss of his income.

Let's band together. We can't bring back Alan but we can help relieve some of the current and future financial burden for this family.

Use of Funds:

The Fund will be used for his funeral and to support Alan’s two young daughters as their educational fund.

Her husband Alan was the victim of the car accident at Botany Downs during the Auckland Anniversary weekend. I was one of the first aiders who came and assisted and felt awful that I couldn’t do more and saw Alan pass away. I found out more after the accident that Alan is survived by his wife and two young daughters. I wish we can pull together and help his family raise some funds for his wife and his two daughters.

All funds raised benefit:

Hua Yang


Funds will be paid to a verified bank account of Hua Yang.
