A four-year-old schoolgirl died, while her mother was seriously injured in a run over incident that took place on Monday afternoon in the emirate of Dubai.
Tragically, the girl died on the spot next to her school after she finished her school-day while walking accompanied by her mother who also sustained major wounds at a car parking next to the school.
Brigadier Dr Adel Al Suwaidi, Director of Jebel Ali Police Station, said that the operations room was alerted at 3:40pm on Monday about a run over accident.
Instantly, the police patrols moved to the scene, where they found a child dead and her mother was suffering from serious injuries.
Through the preliminary investigation, it was found that the accident took place when an African woman wrongly pressed on the car’s accelerator instead of the brakes.
As the car was on the reverse mode, it moved back at a very high speed running over the mother and her child and ramming them against another car that was parked in the place.
The child died immediately, while the mother was seriously injured and taken to NMC Hospital in Dubai, Al Suwaidi added.
He explained that the vehicle’s sudden reversing coincided with the passage of the mother and her child at the same moment.
“Moreover, the impact of the accident was so strong that it damaged three other cars parked in the area,” he added.
