It is never the joy of any parent to lose their child talkless of them being the cause of their demise. But it has always been their prayer to reap the fruits of their labor over and over again.
A Kenyan family based in the United States (US) is currently mourning the demise of their 18-month-old son. It was reported that the father of the deceased child was reversing his car and had no idea that his son was behind him.
The man, who was identified as Dan Mutuma is a nurse at Kansas City. His father was also identified as Pastor Moses Mutuma of Miathene SDA district in Meru County, Kenya.
According to Dan’s brother-in-law Ezra Kamencu Mingaine, he disclosed that the family is in pain. He said: “It is so painful to the entire family and especially to the father to have crushed his own son. There is no way he could have seen the kid who was playing behind. The child had run unnoticed behind the vehicle as the father was reversing. The mother-in-law was in the kitchen while the wife was tending to the other twin children. It was so painful, nobody could be blamed for it.”
Fox 4 News also reported that, residents who saw the tragedy happen said they heard the father wailing after the child was hit by the car. However, the local Olathe police are investigating the matter but did not expect to prefer any criminal charges from the incident and were treating it as an accident.
Mingaine further disclosed that: “If the child were not his, it would have been a terrible case. I have started educating members of the public on the need to ensure they know where their children are while driving away.”
The child will be buried in the US but the burial date has not yet been set.
