Toddler dies in tragic taxi mishap
A toddler died yesterday after being run over by a taxi 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.
The family group had 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 said. The boy’s parents, who are out of the country, have been notified.
The taxi driver was distraught and was taken with the aunt to hospital suffering from shock.
