A 20-month-old child was crushed to death in New York on Tuesday after an SUV driver jumped over the sidewalk and plowed into a pram while her mother fed her.
A witness described that he tried to rescue the little girl Djeneba Magassam, who was in the pram, after Kier Boneparte, 22, drove north from Staten Island on White Plains Road and was unable to control the vehicle when he tried to turn right to the eastern street 215.
The Collision Investigation Squad of the NYPD Highway District found that the white BMW from 2002 hit a parked and empty vehicle around the southern curb in Olinville, Bronx around 4 p.m.
Atta Bofa, 47, told New York Daily News that the child's neck was limp and described the horrific mother's reaction: “There was the crash. The lady shouted: "Help! Help! My baby! My baby!"
