    This is really sad! My deepest sympathies to the family! All drivers has a responsibility to make sure the safety of other road users. Good training and proper tests for the license are key factors to minimize road accidents.

    suresh Wednesday, 26 September 2012 08:36 AM

    Dont say that. Sometimes these children run onto the road. Maybe this child did the same, seeing the father.

    Lobo Wednesday, 26 September 2012 08:10 AM

    Poor poor child. If this maniac at the wheel has no regard for his own child's life how can he care for his passengers or other road users?

    LankanFellow1com Wednesday, 26 September 2012 08:07 AM

    heart breaking news... Mother should have taken care of the child.
