Abdullahi Abubakar Darma who mistakenly killed his daughter yesterday, took to Facebook to recount how he has been mourning following his daughter’s death. Here’s what he wrote;
“Few minutes ago, I got tested (i.e tested by God). I was reversing my car and I marched on my daughter mistakenly and she died”
Sometime in 2015, a Dad was also in the news after he accidentally ran over and killed his 16-month-old daughter after being distracted by the family dog running into the road.
Angel Pitts – who had only just learnt to walk – was knocked down by her father Scott when she wandered in front of the car outside the family home in Leeds, West Yorkshire last June.
Mr Pitts, 36, failed to spot his daughter as he called for his partner Megin Darch to come and pick up the family’s Jack Russell.
He initially thought he had run over one of his children’s toys, an inquest heard.
But Mr Pitts – who had been on his way to collect a DVD for the family to watch – found Angel under the bumper of his Toyota Avensis with serious head injuries.
One neighbour described hearing Mr Pitts screaming and carrying the toddler in his arms immediately after she was hit.
