A broken mother feels she has no right to regret the death of her son who killed herself and four other teenagers when he was driving drunk and causing a fiery blow.
Melissa McGuinness lost her 18-year-old son Jordan after taking the fatal decision to drive home to the Gold Coast after celebrating a Christmas party in Brisbane on December 8, 2012.
Jordan & # 39; s car bumped into the rear of a broken vehicle on the M1 motorway side with five teenagers, four of whom died with Jordan.
Two of the teenagers were parents and left a 15-month-old baby.
& # 39; I almost felt that I had no right to mourn. My son was responsible for the death of four other children, & Mrs. McGuinness told An ongoing case.

& # 39; Who am I to sit here and mourn? Those children were innocent children. He was 2.5 times above the legal limit. I just felt so upset that he had done this. & # 39;
The power of the crash was so important that the car went up the crash barrier before it exploded in flames.
Jordan & # 39; s stepfather Peter and Mrs. McGuinness agreed that drinking and driving was not a normal behavior & # 39; for the teenager, but said this did not diminish his responsibility.
& # 39; The people Jordan encountered and killed that night. They had an accident. Jordan actually made a choice, & his stepfather said.

Six years later, Ms. McGuinness devoted her life to teaching teenagers about the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs and drugs.
& # 39; I know he would be so upset and shocked that this is the legacy he left behind for himself, & # 39; she said.
She speaks to groups full of students, until their son & # 39; died in shame & # 39; and those are & # 39; stupid & # 39; choosing to drive home under the influence could be one of them.
& # 39; The thing with … Jordan is that he is recognizable because he is like every other child sitting in that room … and I am also recognizable as the mother, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; (They are shown through Jordan) This great boy who made this stupid choice that could be one of those children. Each of them.
& # 39; I know he would be immensely proud that his death would not be for nothing and the other four would not be. & # 39;
