Boy dies in taxi mishap
A TODDLER has died after being run over by a taxi in a tragic accident on Queensland’s Gold Coast.
The one-year-old boy had just got out of the maxi-taxi with his 38-year-old aunt and three young siblings when he was killed, police say.
The family group had just returned from a shopping trip when the boy somehow fell under a wheel as the taxi was driving away.
“Due to the injuries there was pretty much zero chance of any medical intervention being successful,” a police officer told Seven News.
The boy’s parents are currently overseas.
