A 3-year-old boy from El Mirage was pronounced dead Tuesday night after he was struck by a sport utility vehicle driven by his father, authorities said.
The child's father, Ramon Nuñez, was backing out of a common driveway in the 14200 block of North First Avenue and was trying to maneuver toward the gate opening on the right side, said Aaron Douglas, spokesman for the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.
As he reversed out of the driveway, Nuñez struck his son, also named Ramon Nuñez, Sheriff's deputies said.
The child was flown by helicopter to Maricopa Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, Douglas said.
The Sheriff's office was locating a translator Wednesday to interview Nuñez, 38, who is a Spanish-speaker, Douglas said.
The boy's father was not impaired at the time, and investigators were calling it an accident, Douglas said.
A similar incident occurred on Sept. 30 in Queen Creek. A 22-month-old boy was accidentally struck by an SUV operated by the boy's father, who was also backing out of the family's driveway."I see this happening all the time," Douglas said. "Parents always need to be observant of (their children's actions."
Oh yeah and...
PHOENIX (Oct. 10) - A 4-year-old Arizona girl walking at the edge of the Grand Canyon slipped and plunged about 450 feet to her death Tuesday, a park official said.
The girl, visiting the vast scenic canyon on a family vacation, fell while on a trail near Mather Point, one of the most popular viewing spots, said park spokeswoman Pamela Walls.
The child's father scrambled down the cliff and tried to resuscitate her, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.
"Millions of people come here on vacation and this is a tragic reminder that when you have children here you have to keep them under control at all times," said Walls. "Something like this can happen in a flash."
It is second time this year that a person has died in a fall from the crimson-hued canyon , an international tourist attraction visited by an estimated 4.5 million people annually.
