An 18-month-old baby died after being run over by a car driven by her father when he was reversing the vehicle out of parking.
According to sources, the incident occurred in front of their villa in Hor Al Anz area of Dubai on Friday morning.
Abid, a resident of Dubai from the Indian state of Kerala, was taking the vehicle out while his daughter Sama immediately ran to the vehicle, a relative of Abid said.
