A family in Perth held a gender reveal for their unborn child after a woman died when she was hit by a concrete block outside a shopping center.
Diane Miller, who was five months pregnant, was hit by the object while she was sitting in her car in Karawara.
The 30-year-old suffered a cardiac arrest after she was knocked unconscious. She later died. Her family celebrated the gender reveal of her child by holding blue glitter, which indicated that she would have given birth to a boy.
Her sister, Alison, said she was devastated by her sister’s death and wanted to see justice done.
She held back tears as she talked about her sister. She said she was devastated by the loss of her sibling and that the child would have been a boy. According to Alison, Miller’s son still doesn’t know where his mother is.
Her partner, Philip Edmonds, said he wanted more justice. The father of the child, who is from Perth, said he is doing his best to raise the boy. According to WA law, there is no separate punishment for the death of a fetus.
Charges were upgraded against a 17-year-old boy who was accused of throwing the concrete block that hit Miller. He was then charged with murder and will appear in court today.
