Family of boy killed in crash donate his organs and fulfil his superhero dream

The family of a boy killed in a horror crash have fulfilled his "superhero" wishes by donating his organs to those in need.

Harry Kinney-Ryan, 13, was just a month shy of his 14th birthday when he was tragically struck and killed by a car on Wednesday, December 7, at 7.25pm.

The fatal incident occurred at the Stonedale Retail Park in East Lancashire, with the youngster, who sadly died of his injuries in Alder Hey Children's Hospital, hit by a silver Vauxhall Astra Estate, LiverpoolEcho reported.

Heartbroken mum Liz Ryan posted to Facebook while Harry's sister, Molly Ryan, spoke of how "proud and broken" she was that her son's organs had been donated.

Her post read: "As you all know my Harry has passed away. I didn't know I could feel this many emotions, I've never felt so broken but proud of my baby boy.

"We did choose for Harry to be an organ donor so as it stands my baby is a hero. So as he grew up wishing to be a superhero my boy got exactly what he wanted."

Sister Molly added: "I'm so proud and broken at the same time. My Harry I’m so so proud of you."

Merseyside Police have since confirmed a 34-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the crash.

The unnamed man remains on bail pending further inquiries, with police releasing a statement asking those with any information to come forward.

Detective Sergeant Andy Roper said: "Harry’s family are being supported by specially trained family liaison officers as our enquiries continue and our thoughts are with them at this sad time.

"If you were travelling on the East Lancashire Road around the time of the incident and have any dashcam footage that could help us with our investigation, or you have any CCTV or information please come forward."

A friend of Harry's family is currently raising funds for the family, with £5,340 so far raised.
