Dina El-noor's left side of her body is "fully stuffed" after she was hit by a runaway jet ski trailer on February 2. El-noor has been left with a broken collarbone and sternum, among other injuries.

A mother-of two pushed her youngest son out of the path of a runaway trailer, taking the brunt of the impact herself.

But Auckland woman Dina El-noor cannot remember any of it.

"I've totally lost my memory from the moment the trailer appeared to the next day," she said.

El-noor and her sons Fadi, 7, and Rami, 12, were riding on their e-scooters to Waiake Beach on February 2 for a picnic when a jet ski trailer came loose from a vehicle on Beach Rd, hitting a parked car and them.

"I cannot remember if I pushed or picked up my 7-year-old from my scooter and pushed him away from the danger," El-noor said.

Dina El-noor says she did not have time to save herself from being hit by this jet ski trailer, but she is glad she managed to pick her youngest son up and throw him away from its path.

She vaguely remembered the presence of the jet ski trailer before she was hit, but until Thursday she thought it had all been a dream.

"I realised it was not a dream yesterday and it's so tough and bloody hard."

Eyewitness Tony Loughran said at the time one of El-noor's legs was "S-shaped and her foot was facing the other way".More from

El-noor said her leg was "really bad".

The incident had left her "mid-thigh bone broken", her femur and tibia broken, and her knee in fragments.

She had already had two surgeries on her leg and was needing more.[Dina El-noor and her husband, Andy Anber, say their sons Fadi, left, and Rami are in "deep shock" after the February 2 incident.]

Dina El-noor and her husband, Andy Anber, say their sons Fadi, left, and Rami are in "deep shock" after the February 2 incident.

Her other injuries included broken ribs, a broken sternum and collarbone. She also had a bleed on her brain and "deep cuts" around her throat from her helmet.

"Every inch of my body is killing me, even the parts that aren't broken. It's so hard to cope," she said.

El-noor's sons were in "deep shock" following Saturday's events, she said.

"When he [Rami] looked at me he thought I was dead."

El-noor's husband, Andy Anber, said their boys had largely escaped with scrapes and bruises. Both had gone to Starship Children's Hospital.

"They're both in shock," he said.

Both El-noor and Anber wanted to see the driver of the vehicle held responsible.

"He's destroyed my wife's life, my sons, my family. I'm so angry," Anber said.

El-noor said somebody needed to be held accountable for the incident. 

"Yes, I didn't die, but if I had not pushed Fadi out of the way, he could be dead."

A police spokesman said the serious crash unit's examination was ongoing.
