& # 39; I just remember that the broken glass pierced my feet when I was just running, running to the middle, I sat down for half a car, & # 39; said Mrs. Underhill.
Elle and Elaina were both rushed to the hospital.
Mr. Underhill, who is a police officer, was then told by a colleague who had died his daughter.
Unfortunately, local agents had mixed the girls and the parents were told that their youngest, Elaina, had been killed.
When Mr. and Mrs. Underhill were taken to identify their daughter's body, they were shocked to find their eldest, Elle, in the mortuary.
& # 39; At that time, I thought both girls were dead & # 39 ;, undergo said.
Elle Underhill, four, and her sister Elaina, two, traveled in a car with their babysitter Courtney Matthews when the tragedy struck
Elaina had sustained life-threatening injuries, but she was still alive. The two-year-old was taken by air bridge to the children's hospital in Brisbane.
When four-year-old Elle died and her younger sister fought for her life, Mathews had escaped the crash with minor injuries.
Matthews, who had suspended her driver's license, was accused of dangerous driving that resulted in death, dangerous driving that caused serious physical injury.
Due to a lack of evidence, these costs have disappeared. Since then she has been guilty of the lesser burden of negligence caused by driving that causes death and bodily harm.
Matthews is sentenced Thursday.
