Toddler accidentally struck down by father succumbs
Three days after 18-month-old Adena Ramkissoon was hospitalised in a critical condition after her father accidentally reversed his car into her, she has succumbed to her injuries.
The accident occurred on Sunday at their Vryheid’s Lust, East Coast Demerara (ECD) home as the child’s father, who operates a home-based taxi service, was reversing out of his yard.
Reports are that the child died on Monday at about 05:35h at the Georgetown Public Hospital.
Danny Ramkissoon, the child’s father, told Police that as he was about to leave home, he felt as though his vehicle ran over something. He said he stopped the vehicle, exited and upon checking, he observed his daughter lying motionlessly under the left rear side of the car. He immediately raised an alarm and the child was picked up and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where she was admitted a patient in the Emergency Unit.
Only on Saturday, 20-month-old Adan Kiritpaul was accidentally crushed to death by his father after he too accidentally reversed and hit the child.
Reports are the toddler’s father was navigating the motor lorry out of his yard when he looked out his rearview mirror and saw something between the wheels.
The man stopped and disembarked only to discover his son lying motionlessly and his head crushed. An alarm was raised and the Police were called.
The child was taken to the Mahaicony Cottage Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
