A chilling Facebook post has surfaced after a horror house fire which killed a 10-year old-boy in Sydney.
Nail salon owner Vickie Le, husband Ming Le, both of their mothers, their son Darren Le and another woman, who neighbours believe to be a carer, were among the residents living in the Hinchinbrook home in Sydney’s west at the time of the deadly blaze.
Darren Le, 10, was pulled from the burning home by firefighters at about 5:40am on Sunday before being rushed to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, where he died from his injuries.
Two women, aged in their 40s and 60s, died at the scene.
The woman in her 40s was believed to be a carer of Ming’s mother, who neighbours say suffered from dementia.
Just hours before the fatal fire, Vickie Le had shared a Buddhist Facebook post about karma in Vietnamese, which featured a cartoon of a young child praying.
“Your mind is good but your suffering is because you have to pay for the karma you have sown in the past,” the translated post read.
“Instead of blaming me, I should make amends and create blessings every day, the karma is paid off and the sky is clear.
“Wish the honest people in this life are always in peace.”
Friends have added crying emojis in the comments following the incident.
The blaze, which is not being treated as suspicious, is believed to have begun in the garage around 5.30am on Sunday before spreading throughout the house.
Neighbour Natalie Borg said she raced down to the burning house with her husband after hearing screams.
Arriving at the scene, Ms Borg said Ms Le was “kneeling on the grass, bashing the ground saying save my son, save my son”.
“Watching the mother scream and beg to ‘save my son’, it was just … unbelievable,” she said.
Ms Borg said her husband and neighbour Roy rushed through the front door to help but the house was pitch black.
“It was a furnace,” she said.
“You could not go any further.”
She said she couldn’t believe how fast the fire took hold, spreading upstairs and across the top floor within a matter of minutes.
“I could hear the windows popping. The whole house was burnt,” she said.
After witnessing paramedics lay sheets over the two women who passed away at the scene, Ms Borg said she watched as they worked on little Darren.
“I just stood on my driveway and prayed and prayed,” she said.
“He was so young. He had his whole life in front of him.”
Ms Borg said the whole street would “rally together” to support the Le family.
“We call this street Ramsay Street because we are always helping each other.”
