This is the saddest story I have read for quite a while, and I am sending my thoughts and love to the community where this happened.
Last night, 8th March, in a suburb near Cairns, Nth Queensland, a 3 year old was run over by two cars, and died later in Cairns Base Hospital. The little boy was disabled, and could not walk.
Apparently a door didn't close properly when someone went outside, and the little boy crawled out and into the road. It was about 8.40 p.m. and the drivers of the two vehicles had little hope of seeing the small boy, who was wearing dark clothing. It appears that he was hit by one car, and thrown into the path of the second.
Shocked and desperate neighbours tried to resuscitate little Lachlan, whose foster father was distraught.
A police spokeswoman, Sergeant Coolican, said "Everyone involved in the incident is terribly upset, and that includes police and paramedics who did attend and the people involved in the car crash".
