They were four beautiful children, enjoying the family holiday of their young lives. There was singing and laughter as Mum drove them to a play date with friends when suddenly everything changed.
In a split second, three of the O’Shea children were killed when their car was hit by another driver doing 45km over the speed limit – who had been texting in the minutes leading up to the crash. Three-year-old Connor, nine-year-old Saoirse and Soren, 11, died at the scene. Only mum, Maria, and six-month-old Torben escaped alive.
But that is only the beginning of this extraordinary story. Less than 24-hours later, while Maria and her husband helped nurse Torben in the children’s hospital, Danish police arrived and charged Maria with the manslaughter of her own children. Determined to right the wrong in honour of their beautiful children, this courageous Aussie couple’s legal battle for justice is one of the most emotional Sunday Night stories of the year.
Reporter PJ Madam also interviews the car-crazy serial speedster whose impatience that fateful day resulted in the deaths of three innocents - and you won’t believe what he has to say. But the biggest twist of all, when the full facts finally emerge, will leave you speechless.
