Through uncontrollable tears, a grieving mother detailed losing her 19-month-old son after he was struck by a vehicle in a Mississauga, Ont. parking lot 24 hours ago.
Rukayat Ajao was with her two sons, her sister and her sisters seven-month-old baby for a refreshing outing in the area of Confederation Parkway and Paisley Boulevard just before 5:30 p.m. when the collision took place.
All of a sudden, I saw this truck come in and it was coming so fast. I was jumping, I was waving like crazy. It was so fast. It happened within a minute before I could even breathe, Ajao told CTV News Toronto on Thursday afternoon.
I saw my baby on the floor.
Ajao said she was holding her "sweet boy," Majeed Chitou, who was covered in scratches and bruises.
I was screaming. I was calling for help and some other people came. They said he was breathing and they were calling 911 and I just grabbed my son and I said Stop calling 911, lets go. I told the guy youre not going anywhere, take my son to the hospital, she said.
So we went to the hospital with his truck and when we get there there was this man holding my son so they rush him inside and the doctor told me Its going to be fine, its going to be fine.
