We can’t help but stress how parents should always keep a close eye on their young kids because accidents can happen in the blink of an eye.
In a CCTV surveillance footage recently circulating on social media, a little girl was rammed and dragged by a car in a petrol station in Klang.
The heart-stopping incident reportedly took place last Thursday, October 11 at a petrol station in Pendamar Indah, Klang, and the little girl who was involved is only two years old.
According to Harian Metro, the 38-year-old mother of the victim, identified only as Nur, said that they were on their way to the night market to do some shopping but had stopped at the petrol station to fill up her motorcycle at around 5.30 pm.
Nur said that when they arrived at the petrol station, her daughter, Imana, wanted to eat ice cream and asked her mother to buy it from the store there.
In the video, Nur can be seen bringing her daughter over to the store and asked her to wait there while she filled up the petrol tank.
Moments later, Imana starts to get impatient and begins crossing over to her mother’s spot while Nur was unaware. Just as Imana almost reached her mother, a car turns into the petrol station and rams the little girl, before dragging her underneath the car for several metres.
Nur only realized that it was her daughter at the moment of impact and she chased after the car.
The stricken mother said,
“At that time, my heart stopped and I almost fainted when I saw my daughter covered in blood. However, I must be strong for my daughter.”
The severely injured Imana was sent to Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahimah (HTAR) in Klang for treatment and Nur says that she is very grateful for the help she got at the petrol station.
As a result of the accident, the little girl suffered from a broken left leg, a fractured right shoulder and even had to have five stitches on her eyebrow and forehead. Fortunately, she is in a stable condition at the moment but still needs to be treated in the hospital.

Meanwhile, Nur asked the public not to judge her so harshly, saying,
“I admit that I was careless and I should not have put her there even for a while. It happened right in front of me and I was devastated. Luckily, this accident did not take Imana’s life otherwise I wouldn’t know what to do.”
South Klang district police chief ACP Shamsul Amar Ramli confirmed the incident and said that they will be investigating the case under Section 43(1)(A) of the Road Transport Act 1987.
We pray for Imana’s quick recovery, and we hope other parents would take Nur’s mistake as a lesson and to always keep an eye on their young ones.
