Another hit-and-run tragedy took place recently in Parañaque City which resulted in the death of a 3-year-old girl who got hit by a sports utility vehicle (SUV), according to a news report by GMA Network. The victim’s companion got hurt as well. This report was published not so long after the reporting of the tragedy that took place in BF Homes in the same city.
To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the GMA Network news report. Some parts in boldface…
A three-year-old girl died after being run over by a sports utility vehicle (SUV) in Paranaque City.
The girl’s companion, another child, sustained wounds, according to a report by Jonathan Andal on the weekend edition of “24 Oras.”
The two kids reportedly went out of their house to look for the brother of the victim and were walking on the road when the SUV made a left turn and hit one of them.
Concerned citizens had to run after the SUV driver to stop him and told him about the incident.
“Sabi ko, ‘boss may nasagasaan kang bata, akin na yung susi mo.’ Eh ayaw ibigay. Hindi ko nakita na may bata, ‘yun ang sabi niya,” John Bert Lopez said.
He continued, “Pero imposible na hindi nya nakita ‘yun, kasi andito pa lang sa humps dapat nakita nya ‘yun.”
The father of the child, Raymond Sampang, regretted going to work in a construction site that day. As he had to be away, he said he asked his older sons, age 11 and 12, to look after their sister.
“Kung alam ko lang na mangyayari yun, hindi na sana ako nagtrabaho ng araw na ‘yun,” he said.
The victim’s mother has just returned home from her work abroad, but could not be with her family yet as she has yet to complete her quarantine.
Sampang said the 68-year-old SUV driver has not offered help to his family.
The driver, who was not allowed to be interviewed by GMA News, said he did not see the two kids on the road.
