A two-year-old Australian boy was accidentally killed on Monday afternoon by his mother as she was driving her car in reverse at their home in Jalan Binchang in Bishan.

According to media reports, the toddler, Henry Harrington, was playing with his skate scooter at the front gate when he saw his mother returning home.

He ran toward her white multi-purpose vehicle as it reversed into their two-storey rented bungalow.

His mother, a housewife, did not see him and ran over him, only realising what had happened when a passing taxi driver yelled at her to stop the car, according to The Straits Times.

At that time, the family's domestic helper was doing chores at the back of the house, while Henry's older sister, aged 4, was inside. His older brother, 6, was out on a play date.

Neighbours saw Mrs Harrington screaming and holding her son, as she performed CPR on him while waiting for the ambulance to arrive.

Businessman Jack Lee, who lives opposite the Harringtons, said that he heard his neighbour's screams and ran to their house where he saw a pool of blood under the family's car, reported The New Paper.

"At first, I thought it was a dog," Lee said on seeing Mrs Harrington with her son. "But when I looked closer, I realised it was a child. She was panicking and shouting for someone to save her son."

Henry was then rushed to KK Women and Children's Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 5:45pm.

A police spokesperson said that investigations are ongoing and that they have questioned Mr and Mrs Harrington.

Henry's father, Dion, said his wife usually brought Henry along whenever she went out.

"Yesterday was one of the rare occasions she left him at home," he said.

He also said he plans to bring his son's body back to Perth, where they lived before moving to Singapore in September last year.

He said, "We will probably just have a service in Singapore, but we intend to bring him back to Perth this weekend."

This is so tragic. No parents should go through this. Everytime parents have to bury their kids so sad, so sad bcoz me and my family went through it and I never, never want it to happen to anyone else. It is so heartbreaking when something tragic happen like this.

Father's Day

This coming 19th June is all about Father's Day. This blog should have been written by children about their father. But I decided to write about my husband, who also happens to be a dotting father...He'll do anything for his kids. His days starts very early, infact it started the night before. He would prepare the ingredients for his kids breakfast the next day. He would rather loose watching his favourite show just to prepare these ingredients. The next morning he would wake up early to prepare breakfast and once they are ready he would drive them off to class. If they have a long break for lunch for which they normally comes home, my husband would then rush home to prepare lunch for them and pick them up from class and after lunch send them for their afternoon class. He would come back home to prepare for dinner and the task of picking up the kids from class would be mine in the evening. You can imagine how tired he would be by evening but he still manage to open the house gate (manually, I never bring the gate/house keys)whenever we arrived at home. He would welcome us home with the most loving grin on his face (despite the ugly look we gave him whenever we (me & the kids) argue in the car. So on this Father's Day I just want to let the whole world knows, that I'm so happy to be married to my husband who never once complaint that he is tired of just being there for us. I LOVE YOU HONEY, ALWAYS.........

Yipeeee.. Long Holiday coming up but no friends to share it with...

Here comes the long Gawai holiday. I remembered in year 1983 or 1984 (i think),we get to go on school holidays for weeks for the Gawai holiday which coincide with the Hari Raya celebration. That was fun when you are surrounded by friends. As we grew older, we miss faces that we use to know. I don't know what happen but friends that we use to know end up merely being a face without a name in our memory. So sad but it is happening everywhere. My girls are going through the same phase. After high school, everyone went their own ways and the face we use to know will be just another face without a name in our memory.
