Mum knocks down and kills own girl, 6, while parking

The 6-year-old was passionate about ballet.

But Bolutito Shodipe will never have the chance to dance before an adoring audience, after she died in a parking mishap.

What made the untimely death even more tragic was the fact that her mother ran over her - and now has to cope with the guilt of killing her own child.

The accident happened at a car park outside Hounslow West tube station in south-west London yesterday.

Bolutito's mother was trying to park her car outside the station at around 9.40am when she struck her child, the Daily Mail reported.

Terrible accident

Paramedics tried to resuscitate her at the scene but she later died in hospital.

A family statement released by police said: "Bolutito was our eldest daughter and no-one could have asked for a better daughter.

"She was a beautiful, well behaved, girl who loved ballet and who will be sorely missed by all of us.

"This is an extremely upsetting time for us and we ask that we be given the respect and space to grieve and to come to terms with this terrible accident."

Detectives are working to determine how the incident occurred.
