Boy dies in taxi mishap

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - News -

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.
