Man accidentally runs over daughter, son in backyard

June 29, 2014 1:40 P.M. (Updated: June 29, 2014 1:40 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A man mistakenly ran over two of his own children in Yatta south of Hebron in the southern West Bank on Sunday morning, injuring them seriously, the Palestinian police said.

In a statement, Hebron police said that a man from Yatta was driving his car in reverse in his backyard and unwittingly hit his own son and daughter, who were aged 3 and 5.

The two were evacuated to al-Ahli Hospital in Hebron.

Medics said the son sustained extremely serious wounds and was taken to an intensive care unit. The daughter also sustained serious injuries, but doctors said she was in stable condition.
