More details surrounding the fatal bus collision last week have been emerging. According to the Chinese daily, the six-year-old boy who lost his life in the accident around Choa Chu Kang Ave 4 and 5 dashed out into oncoming traffic when his mother switched hands to hold on to her son while they were crossing the road.

The Chinese daily reports that the boy, Ashvin, is an Indian national who had been visiting his father – a Singapore Permanent Resident – who works here and lives in a rented flat at Choa Chu Kang. Ashvin, who was accompanied by his pregnant mother, was supposed to be attending an English phonetics class to improve his English-speaking skills that fateful day.

As Ashvin’s mother switched hands to hold her son, Ashvin dashed out into the road and was struck by a public bus. The boy was found pinned underneath the rear wheel of the bus. According to eyewitnesses at the scene, “a lot of blood flowing under the bus.”

Ashvin’s distraught parents returned to India the next day while their young son’s body was flown back home that same day.
