Alappuzha: A 9-month-old baby, who was playing in front of her house in Alappuzha, Kerala, was killed when she crawled on the road and was hit by a car. According to reports, the baby was hit by the car on January 15.

The baby Shivangi was rushed to the hospital, but her life could not be saved.

Similarly, in September 2019, a one-year-old toddler, who was sitting on her mother's lap, had fallen off a moving jeep inside dense forest and had crawled to a nearby check-post in Rajamala in Idukki.

The child's absence was noticed after the parents had travelled several kilometres. Wildlife officials at the check-post had heard the child's cries and found her on a forest path which is often used by wild animals, including elephants.

It was a miraculous escape for the baby as she suffered only minor injuries on her face and forehead due to the fall.

The baby was taken to a nearby hospital where first- aid was administered, and she was later handed over to her parents. A CCTV visual of the incident had gone viral later.
