New Delhi (Sputnik) — A chilling footage of a two-year-old being mowed down by a speeding car has emerged from India's southern state of Telengana. The horrific incident reportedly took place in a residential colony in the outskirts of the state capital Hyderabad.
After being hit by the vehicle, locals took the child to three nearby hospitals, all of which refused to attend to the child. The toddler finally succumbed to his injuries before reaching the fourth hospital.
The video shows the child trying to cross a road alone. He presumably failed to see the approaching vehicle.
The incident was caught on multiple CCTV cameras placed in the locality. The victim has been identified as Jaswanth, son of Nagesh. The kid was with his uncle at the time of the fateful incident, but the boy, a son of a laborer couple, rushed out of the shop while his uncle was paying the bill for the chocolates they had just purchased from a grocery shop.
Local police told media that the driver has been taken into custody and a case of negligent driving causing the death of a person has been registered.
