Girl, 2, toddles to greet brother in MP, run over by school bus

BARWANI: A schoolbus ran over a two-year-old girl, who had toddled out to greet her elder brother, a kindergarten student, when he alighted from the vehicle outside their home in Gandhwal village of Barwani district on Wednesday evening.
A CCTV camera captured the horror when little Ayushi waddled towards the bus, and it began rolling. The children’s father, Antim Rathore, had walked up the bus gates to receive his son and didn’t notice Ayushi cross the road behind him, said police.
Excited to see her brother, Ayushi ran in front of the bus close to the front tyres, Barwani’s subdivisional police officer Rooprekha Yadav said. The child was beyond the driver’s field of vision, say police.
He put the bus in gear and drove on, crushing the little one. When people started screaming, he braked and jumped off in panic to check on the child. In his haste, he forgot to deploy the handbrake or switch off ignition. The vehicle rolled on, with 15 children on board. While everyone was fixated one the dead child, the bus was rolling uncontrolled. Fortunately, a young man noticed this, sprinted after it, jumped into the driver’s seat and brought it to a stop.
The driver fled after seeing the child’s body. Yadav said a case has been registered against him and police teams are on his trail. Ravi Rathore, an eyewitness, said there was no attendant or helper on the bus.
