Toddler ran over by her mother at home

A mother accidently killed her 14-month-old daughter after knocking her over in her car in the drive way of their home in the Hautes Pyrenées region.

The mother, who has two other children ages seven and four, was entering the drive of their house, and did not see the child, who was hidden by a pillar.

The child was killed instantly.

“I heard the mother screaming,” said one neighbour. “It’s dramatic and unfair.”

A fourth person aged 15 was rescued, suffering from hypothermia, and taken to hospital, they added.

The Amiens prefecture said the bodies of a man and a woman in their 50s were found on the beach at Crotoy after midnight while the body of another man was recovered later.

It said eight kayakers, members of a local club at Saint-Valery-Sur-Somme, set out Saturday afternoon but they split up into two groups, with four returning to base and the others continuing, aiming for Cayeux-sur-Mer down the coast.

The alarm was raised at 17:45 pm (1645 GMT), with two helicopters and rescue boats involved.
