A BOY has died after his mum reversed over him coming out of the family home, it was reported.
The two-year-old died at the scene of the tragedy, which happened at around 3pm, police said.
A witness claimed it was the toddler's mother who ran the little boy over by “accident” at the family’s home in Port Cook, in Melbourne, Australia.
“I watched (the mother) and that's what hit me the most, seeing her pain really got to me,” they told Daily Mail Australia.
“I can't stop thinking about it, she was hysterical. The police had to pull her out of the way when trying to resuscitate him.”
Police said they do not expect anyone to be charged over the accident.
A similar tragedy happened back in 2020 at a home in Perth, Western Australia.
