A nine-month-old baby girl crawled on to the middle of the road and got crushed to death. She was playing in front of her road-side house at Karalakam in Alappuzha. Shivangi crawled into the middle of the road and got crushed under a car. Nobody got the whiff of it as it had already gotten dark.
She was hit by a car at around 6.30 p.m on Wednesday. Though her mother rushed the baby to a hospital, her life could not be saved, police said.
It was in September last year that a one-year old toddler, who was sitting on her mother’s lap, had fallen off a moving jeep inside a dense forest and had crawled to a nearby check-post in Rajamala in Idukki.
The child’s absence was noticed after the parents had travelled several kilometres.
Wildlife officials at the check-post had heard the child’s cries and found her on a forest path which is often used by wild animals, including elephants.
It was a miraculous escape for the baby as she suffered only minor injuries on her face and forehead due to the fall.
The baby was taken to a nearby hospital where first- aid was administered and she was later handed over to her parents. A CCTV visual of the incident had gone viral later.
