A Filipino nanny was killed in a hit-and-run incident in the Cayman Islands on April 12. Susan Simoy Sumalapao, 56, who had worked in the Cayman Islands for eight years, was walking across the Esterly Tibbetts Highway when a dark-colored car hit her, the Cayman Compass reported.

Sumalapao was rushed to hospital but pronounced dead on arrival. Lemuel Sobrejuanite, Sumalapao’s cousin, and his wife Alma contacted Sumalapao’s family in the Philippines and told them about the accident.

“They’re asking when they’re going to have the body sent home. They’re really worried about what’s happening,” Alma said.

Sumalapao worked in the Cayman Islands to support her three children in the Philippines. The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service is investigating the case and looking for the driver of the car.
