A 47-year-old man killed his two-year-old daughter when he accidently reversed his Toyota Hilux over her, at about 8.45am yesterday, 28 February
The child, Nur Aireena Ihani Azizi, was standing behind her father's four-wheel-drive vehicle when she was ran over yesterday.
"I regret the incident and am lost for words. My only daughter is no longer around," said her father, Azizi Ramli, when speaking to NST.
The traumatised man had refused to make any further comments on the harrowing incident.
Meanwhile, Aireena's elder brother Muhammad Aiman Azizi, 18, was distraught over the death of his sister, saying that he was at a grocery shop beside their house when Aireena was ran over.
"I was sitting at the counter at our grocery shop beside our house, and did not realise that my sister had gone out of the house. I only noticed her lying in a pool of blood behind my father's car," explained Aiman, adding that he rushed over after hearing his mother, 41-year-old Noraini Mohamad shouting his sister's name in a state of panic.
His father rushed Aireena to the hospital following the incident, but had called the family soon after to let them know that she had passed away
According to the NST report, the accident apparently happened after the two-year-old's father returned to the house after delivering some goods.
Maran district police chief Deputy Superintendent Mazlan Hassan has confirmed the incident.
