Near miss - Rita's Story

Rita from The Punt Road Project has a story from her family. One Sunday afternoon, her cousin was playing tennis in Clifton Hill. He finished up at about 5.30pm and rode his bike down Hoddle Street home to Collingwood.

Just two hours later, in the exact spot where he'd ridden, Julian Knight took pot shots at commuters and passersby. Seven people were killed and 19 injured. Rita's cousin missed the Hoddle Street Massacre by two hours.
