A 6-year-old boy has died after being hit by a taxi in Tuen Mun this afternoon. The boy and his mother, both of whom are mainland Chinese, were reportedly walking hand-in-hand along Heung Sze Wui Road, near Ho Pong Street at around 5:20pm. According to Apple Daily, the child is suspected to have suddenly run out onto the road, and was knocked down by a taxi.

 

A report by Oriental Daily alleged that the child had run onto the road to follow his mother, and claimed that she was rushing to cross the road before the traffic light turned red. A witness told Apple Daily that the boy sustained a major wound to his head, and was bleeding profusely. A doctor and nurse from a nearby medical clinic reportedly performed first aid on the child before he was taken to hospital.

 

The 6-year-old was later certified dead at around 6pm. The taxi driver has been arrested and taken into police custody for questioning.

This is not something you want to happen, hope the boy rest in peace and a reminder to parents to always hold onto their kids especially in asia.

This is a tragic accident and every parents' true nightmare :76: ... this incident serves as a lesson to parents that they need to hold their children's hands tight (and not to let go) when crossing the street.

Sad news. Unfortunately, many people go on about their lives without paying attention to their surroundings. Especially parents, they should have more caution since they have kids.

so sad...did the stupid driver not see the child. The driver said they didn't notice they had run over the child and there is an ongoing investigation.
