The three-year-old boy fights for his life mowed down in full by an out of control car yesterday afternoon in the Parco Lago Nord in Paderno Dugnano (Milan), and hospitalized in critical condition at the Bergamo hospital. The driver of the car, 72 years old and already known to the police, is under investigation for very serious injuries and driving without a license.

According to what was reconstructed by the carabinieri, as confirmed by the public prosecutor of Monza Claudio Gittardi, the pensioner was driving a seized Citroen, of which he was the administrative custodian, following the suspension of his driving license, due to a previous accident.

The elder, therefore, would not have had to drive at all, but he chose to do so anyway. However, it is not clear why he decided to get in a car and drive in an area not normally allowed for vehicular traffic. There he turned a family’s carefree day into a nightmare.

After I finished with the car on a panoramic terrace that surmounts a large green area, the motorist has lost control of his car, perhaps due to an illness (but for now we remain in the hypothesis branch), ending up against a protective balustrade, breaking through it, and then falling below a staircase, overwhelming the child who was out for a walk in the company of his parents.

A sudden roar, the car swooping down from above and no possibility of avoiding it, is the scenario in front of which mum and dad found themselves before. Immediate request for help from those present, with parents desperate in an attempt to resuscitate their child. When the doctors arrived on the spot, they took steps to carry out the emergency maneuvers and stabilized the baby, before transporting him by helicopter to Bergamo.

The child, still in a reserved prognosis, he has to deal with polytrauma but the doctors are doing everything to help him overcome the critical situation. The motorist was also injured, who in turn was rescued and transported to the Niguarda hospital where he is currently intubated and in serious condition. Once hospitalized he was subjected to all the necessary tests, which showed that he was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. In his past, in addition to prison, there was also a road accident in which pedestrians were involved, for which he was responsible, which is why his license was revoked.
