The father, a young boy allegedly killed by an unlicensed driver while attending school innocently, says the family is torn to pieces & # 39; by his death.
The boy, who cannot be identified because he is the victim of a crime, ran the short distance to school from his home in Hurstville, southern Sydney, on Friday at 8.40 am when he was hit and killed by the uncontrolled car .
His distraught father told Daily Mail Australia that the family went through hell & # 39 ;.
& # 39; It's just awful, I didn't sleep at all last night, we didn't sleep & # 39 ;, said the boy's father.
& # 39; My wife is distraught. We went to the cemetery to prepare (for his funeral). & # 39;
The father said it was a path that his eldest son walked to school every morning at nearby Sydney Technical High in Bexley, and Friday morning would have been no different.
& # 39; It makes no sense, & # 39; said the father.

Police said the boy was switching to a green pedestrian signal when unlicensed driver Rabih Abdulrahman, 36, lit a red light and hit him.
Abdulrahman is accused of manslaughter and dangerous driving with death as a result and remains behind bars.
An improvised memorial with dozens of bunches of flowers was erected outside of Hurstville Public School, at the intersection of Lily St and Forrest Road, where the boy was killed.
& # 39; We are sorry this happened & # 39 ;, stood on a school sweater, attached to the gate.
In the meantime, it appears that Abdulrahman had lived in motels after his tax-paid home had been destroyed by fire and was not on his way until October.
Abdulrahman was banned from driving in the community last October.
The unemployed father of three was forced to move from his committee unit to a nearby motel in Cartwright when the block was destroyed by fire in February.

Rabih Abdulrahman, 36, reportedly ran a red light and killed a 12-year-old boy who went to school on Friday morning in Hurstville, in southwest Sydney. He had been a wanderer in the months before, after the fire destroyed his housing commission in Cartwright

Since then, Abdulrahman has lived in a nearby motel, with his family still unable to explain what he was doing in the Hurstville area on Friday morning.
"He used to live in Hurstville, but not for a long time, so we don't know where he was going or what he was doing," his brother said on Saturday.
& # 39; We are distraught. We are so sad about what happened. It is a child, nobody wants children to be hurt.
& # 39; He doesn't see his children that often, but in the end I am a father and he is a father. & # 39;
Abdulrahman is said to have driven his Toyota Corolla at high speed through a red light and hit the young man who walked a marked pedestrian crossing to a green man.
Witnesses claimed that Abdulrahman stepped out of his car in the moments after the crash and lit a cigarette.
He then tried to resist the arrest when the police arrived and later raised his middle finger to camera crews.
A painter, Abas Nazari, ran to help in the aftermath of the accident and said he would sit next to the injured boy until help arrived.
& # 39; I lay down on the floor and saw him under the car, and I thought maybe he was alive … there was a lot of blood, & # 39; said Mr. Nazari.
& # 39; Someone had called an ambulance by then, so I was just sitting there with him. It was terrible, he never had a chance. & # 39;
Abdulrahman was not licensed and has been in community punishment since last October
The boy, a 7-year-old student at Sydney University of Technology in nearby Bexley, walked the road before being hit by the car on Friday
While bystanders did everything they could to help the dying boy, Mr. Nazari said the 36-year-old male driver of the Toyota Corolla who struck him remained calm.
& # 39; He didn't say anything, he just stood by his car, and then he started smoking, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; He normally walked around his car. He didn't try to help the boy, he just looked under the car and that was it. & # 39;
Abdulrahman appeared briefly on Saturday in Parailatta Bail Court, where his lawyer Mohamed Said did not request bail.
Mr. Said said to the media out of court: & # 39; I have not had the opportunity to talk to him or the family at this stage, so I cannot say much at this time. & # 39;
Abdulrahman stays behind bars until he appears on November 4 at the local court of Sutherland.
Details of Abdulrahman's past have since become known and revealed that he had imposed an intensive one-year correction order.
He was convicted last October for attacking a police officer, carrying knives in public, driving a vehicle under the influence of drugs and resisting the arrest.
Attorney General Mark Speakman said the case would be submitted for review.
The boy was fastened under the vehicle for up to an hour before being released and rushed to the hospital for treatment, but died tragically shortly thereafter
The young boy – who cannot be named for legal reasons – went to school when he crossed Lily Road and was allegedly hit by Abdulrahman around 8:40 am
& # 39; I have asked the Department of Communities and Justice to provide me with a transcript of relevant procedures regarding the alleged offender, which I will review. & # 39;
The young victim – who is not legally named – went to school at Sydney Technical High when he was hit.
He was locked under the vehicle for up to an hour before being released and rushed to the hospital for treatment, but died tragically shortly thereafter.
MP from the local state for Kogarah Chris Minns issued a statement on behalf of Sydney Technical High School on Friday evening.
& # 39; Our thoughts are with them in this very sad time. Students and staff have received guidance to support them and also have contact numbers so that they have access to help during the weekend or later if necessary. & # 39;
& # 39; Together as a community we will support each other through this tragedy. & # 39;
