Woman Accidentally Kills 2-Year-Old Son While Reversing:
In a sad development from Mutare, a mother killed her two-year-old toddler son after she reversed her car without first checking her surroundings.
Police spokesperson Inspector Luxson Chabanda confirmed the tragic incident which happened Thursday in the border town’s Morningside suburb at around 11 am.
According to the police report, Regina Sengwe (29) was reversing an Isuzu KB 250 which was parked in their yard when she ran over her son.
It was reported by New Zimbabwe that on this day the family helper identified as Charity Mutisi (23) left the minor unattended while opening the gate for Sengwe.
The minor reportedly walked towards the moving vehicle and was hit by the rear bumper. Unaware that she had hit her son, she continued reversing the vehicle and dragged him underneath the car.
She only stopped the vehicle after she heard the helper screaming and saw her running towards the vehicle. He sustained head and chest injuries
He was immediately rushed to Murambi gardens hospital where he was admitted without a formal police report.
Unfortunately, the minor died the following day around 3 pm after which a report was made to Mutare Central police and the body was taken to Victoria Chitepo Provincial Hospital postmortem.
Following the incident, Inspector Chananda urged members of the public to check their surroundings before driving and parking to avoid such accidents and the loss of life.
