This isn't the first time such an accident has occurred. A two-year-old boy was killed while his mother was reversing her car on November 5, 2020, in Florida. The child's mother had left her son with their pet dog inside the house as she and the child's grandmother were test-driving their car on their private road. When the vehicle began stalling, the mother hit reverse, drove forward before hitting reverse again. The mother told the authorities that she felt the car hit a piece of wood when she reversed it for the first time, but when she went to check, she found the toddler in front of the vehicle.

It does not end there. On September 16, in Leeds, England, a one-year-old girl was reported dead after being accidentally run over by her father who claimed that he had not seen the child. The devasted father was seen cradling the infant in his arms as he wept in agony. A three-year-old boy was killed in a tragic accident after being run over by a family member at a Chicago park, on October 10. The driver claimed that she did not see him but felt like she had struck something and hence stepped out of the car to check when she found the boy under the car.
