Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson surprise family with generous cash donation after their son was hit by a car on his way to school

They’re Australian radio’s resident shock jocks, but Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson took advantage of the opportunity to do some good on Tuesday.

The Kyle & Jackie O Show hosts donated $10,000 in conjunction with Italian restaurant Enzo’s Cucina to a young boy who had been hit by a car in February.

Speaking to 13-year-old Ethan and his family, the radio hosts heard how he’d been walking to school with his twin brother Hayden when a car struck him on a pedestrian crossing.

Ethan has been in hospital since his accident, but is due to return home on Friday, with his mother taking unpaid leave from her job, while his father was given carer’s leave.   

‘You’d do anything to sit with your child, but then bills pile up, and life is expensive. Things cost money,’ Kyle, 49, told them.

Revealing they’d had to make some modifications to their house to make it accessible for Ethan once he returns home from the hospital, Jackie, 45, told the family they ‘wanted to take a bit of the stress off when it comes to bills’.

‘The $10,000, hopefully that will just ease a bit of the pressure off you guys or you can give him something that he wants,’ added Kyle.

Ethan’s cousin, Shannon, got emotional at this news, after being the one to contact the radio hosts asking for help.  

Shannon joked that now they’d be able to enjoy a ‘shopping spree’, confessing Ethan’s a fan of brand names like Tommy Hilfiger.

‘This is exciting, Ethan. You can buy up,’ laughed Jackie. 

Following his shocking accident, Ethan spent nine weeks in a coma, and is still recovering from his horrific injuries.

Immediately after the accident, he needed to have a piece of his skull removed to relieve pressure on his brain, with his mother explaining how she arrived on the scene to find paramedics working to revive him.
