Lapaha mum charged after running over and killing her son

A 38-year-old mother from Lapaha faces with manslaughter by negligence charge after police said she ran over her two-year-old son.

The mother was reversing her four-wheel drive vehicle when the incident occurred on the night of October 6 after 8pm.

Police believed the child fell out of the vehicle while her mother was talking to her other children apparently unaware that her passenger had come off the vehicle.

But she stopped reversing after she heard a thump only to find out she had run over her son.

The child died on his way to hospital, according to Police.

The mother was expected to appear at the Mu’a Magistrate court.
