Driver kills daughter by mistake

SANDAKAN - A man accidentally killed his three-year-old daughter while he was parking his four-wheel drive vehicle.

The girl died of severe head injuries outside a relative's house in Taman Sejati Ujana here at about 10.30pm on Friday.

District police chief Asst Comm Zabidi Md Zain said the 38-year-old man had dropped off his wife and their four children outside the house for a Hari Raya visit.

"He then proceeded to park the vehicle. Just as he realised that he had bumped into something, he heard his wife screaming," said ACP Zabidi.

He rushed the child to the Duchess of Kent Hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
