A 2-year-old boy from Florida has died of injuries sustained when his mom accidentally ran him over with her car in an apartment complex parking lot.
Kristopher Jackson Jr.’s mom told authorities that another relative was watching the toddler early Monday morning when she backed over him in Jacksonville, Florida.
The toddler was rushed to a local hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, according to First Coast News.
His mom, whose name has not been released, told First Coast News that the tragic incident was “something that I had no control over.”
“He was perfect in my eyes and even though this was a fatal accident, I will never be the same,” she said. “I always made sure I was aware of my children whereabouts and I hope it helps others to be aware that no matter what, make sure you keep an eye out for your child or children, but also all children. I don’t feel there was anything I could’ve done to prevent this.”
