The horrifying moment an unconscious boy was carried by a woman and put him in a blue van was captured on video.
In the video – shot by a passenger in another vehicle which appeared to have arrived at the scene just as the incident happened – voices full of pity can be heard saying “Auee…faka’ofa…ki’i leka ‘ahai” (Oh…it’s a pity…whose kid is he).
Police said they received information that a child was hit by a vehicle yesterday at Tokomololo and was transported to Vaiola Hospital.
Nuku’alofa Police Superintendent Tevita Fifita told Kaniva News he was informed about the incident.
Fifita said no arrest has been made. He could not identify the victim or the driver of the vehicle that hit him. He also could not be able to confirm the condition of the boy saying police were still working on it.
Taake Fallday uploaded the video to Facebook and said this was a pitiful day for the family of the victim after he was struck by the vehicle right on the road at Tokomololo Government Primary School.
