A father is in police custody following the death of his 20-month-old son, Adan Kiritpaul, who was crushed to death by a lorry at their Mahaica, East Coast Demerara (ECD) residence.
Police Headquarters in a statement noted that the father was slowly navigating the motor lorry out of his yard and when he looked out his rear-view mirror, he saw something between the lorry’s wheels.
He immediately stopped and disembarked when he made the gruesome discovery of his son lying motionless and his head crushed. The police arrived shortly after and commenced processing the scene. The body of the child was taken to the Mahaicony Public Hospital and an official pronouncement of death was made.
A post mortem is expected shortly and the father remains in custody assisting with the investigation.
