A little boy broke away from the group and started running towards the road crossing.

A woman, presumably the boy’s mother, went after the boy to grab his hand.

However, it was too late. The boy sped towards the road and was run over by a car coming from the other side.

The car ran over the little boy, but he appeared to be conscious as he tried to get up with some difficulty.

A netizen commented that adults must always hold the child’s hand when they are walking along the street or about to cross the road.

Another commented that the parked car seemed to have been a blind spot for the other driver who ran over the boy.

Police are yet to give a statement about the incident. -/TISGFollow us on Social Media
