A one-year-old child has reportedly passed away after being struck by a train on railroad tracks.
According to reports by local media outlets, the child died instantly after sustaining horrifying injuries.
According to reports from local media outlets, the young child died after being slammed by a train. She was reportedly stationary when the train struck her in Missouri, causing heartbreak.
The incident took place over the weekend in Hardin and it was nearly 8:45 am during the time. Now many are pointing fingers at the parents and why the child was unattended so early in the morning, despite her young age.
During a recently held interview, sources claim the parents identified the young girl as little Harper. She was just a few weeks away from her second birthday.
And that’s something that they regret so much as they were making plans for a grand celebration. Little did they know that it would not last long at all.
Her parents have added how Harper was a very curious and adventurous soul. She adored doing lots of things at once and even got energetic for simple things like a walk or a stroll.
She was a happy baby and I know so well that our adorable bubble is in the heavens up there, smiling at us”- the mother mentioned while wiping tears from across her face.
When the parents were questioned about the entire ordeal and why things ended up happening the way they did, they refused to comment on just that.
According to them, this is not the right time. They are in a moment of grieving and wanted the press and public to respect their privacy.
“We are at a loss. We are heartbroken and just devasted at what has taken place”- they continued.
