Houston Rockets forward Danuel House lost four of his relatives in a tragic car accident due to the irresponsibility of a drunk driver on Saturday.
House is understandably still in shock over this unthinkable tragedy involving his sister-in-law and his nephews. The Rockets veteran could only muster up a four-emoji reaction to seeing his four relatives gone in an instant.

It’s hard to speculate what he exactly meant with the tweet. Nonetheless, House clearly is going through a lot of emotions right now.
One can only imagine the pain that Damien, House’s brother and the husband and father of the four victims, is going through. He lost his family just like that and it’s all because of the irresponsible actions of a single individual.
According to Cory McCord of KHOU, Porsha Branch was with their children, seven-month-old Drake, two-year-old Messiah, and five-year-old King. They were on their way home when the drunk driver struck their vehicle from behind.
Obviously still in shock over everything that transpired, the Rockets forward’s brother spoke in an interview about his wife.
“She’s the love of my life and it’s just hard for me to see my wife and three of our kids gone,” House said. “I thought it would get easier, but it just seems to get harder and harder each day.”
He also revealed that he had to go through the pain of breaking the news to the rest of his three children. Damien revealed the kids are not taking the news well at all.
Our condolences, thoughts, and prayers go to Danuel House, Damien House, and the rest of their family over this unthinkable tragedy.
