One man’s life changed forever on Wednesday after he accidentally ran over and killed his 9-year-old daughter with his own car.
Surveillance footage from a gas filling station in Chengdu shows the young girl squatting down to play on the station’s parking lot. According to eyewitnesses, her father told her to get up and get in the car; however, she soon returned to the same spot and crouched back down to continue playing.
Tragically, the video next shows the man’s vehicle rounding the corner and running over the little girl with both front and back tires, killing her.
Workers at the station told the Chengdu Business Daily that the father likely could not have seen his daughter crouched down in the corner as he made the sharp right turn.
You can watch the video below. Obviously, viewer discretion is advised.
