Thousands of people have contributed to the family of a man killed while staying in traffic lights in Auckland.
Zhengwen, Alan Hu, 50, died when his car was later on Monday, January 28, and he stopped at the busy crossroads at Tī Rākau Dr and Botany Rd at 5pm.
An early Reporting page was established yesterday by Dr Jacky Lam, first respondent.
He rose more than $ 102,000 by 10pm last night.
Just after 10am today, nearly 3000 people, families or businesses around New Zealand were given almost $ 124,100.
Many of those who have made donations also paid tribute to Hu.
Dr Lam was one of the first people on the scene when Hu, also known as Alan, was sitting behind two other cars. He was killed on January 28.
Hu was wearing his seat belt but the "strong effect" collision of the vehicle behind him seemed to kill, said Lam.
"Alan leaves his dedicated wife and two 8 and 11 year olds," says the page.
"They went from a healthy family, happy to destroy them completely in the blink of an eye.
"Their lives have been torn apart and it's hard to imagine how long the journey to restore will be."
Lam arrived at the scene shortly after 5pm last Monday and worked with emergency services and a trainee nurse to try to save Hu's life.
"I've seen some like this, but it's never bad. The car and hit it must be getting very fast," he told the Herald last week.
"There is a tragedy of this kind. This man was out enjoying the day, without doing anything from his place, staying in the lights and then it happened, I went , it could be one of us. "
Inspector Cornell Kluessein said that there were three cars – a SUV, four-wheel drive and a wagon – staying in the lights on Botany Road when the third car was over.
"The last car came up at a high speed and ran into the back of the third car and the three blast them on," said Kluessein.
"The person died in the third car, one occupier and person in the last car – who hit them – was captured in the first place, and had to be removed by the person fire frigade. "
The person was pulled in the fourth car, Holden's sediment, from the car and pulled to Middlemore Hospital.
The money given on Givealittle will be used for Hu's funeral and to support her two young girls as their educational fund.
"On top of sadness losing her husband and father, they are now in financial hardship because of losing their income," he reads.
"Let's join each other. We can not bring Alan back, but we can help relieve some current and future financial burden for this family."
