As reported by Emergencies Madrid, a three-year-old boy has tragically died this Friday, April 1, after being run over by a bus from the municipal transport network. The incident occurred at the arrivals access of Terminal 4 of the Adolfo Suarez Madrid-Barajas Airport

It is believed that the child was sitting on top of some suitcases on a luggage cart with his mother and grandmother, all Mauritanian nationals. For reasons still under investigation by the police, the young boy somehow fell onto the road as the bus passed, dying instantly on the spot.

The accident occurred at 2:30pm in the bus lane of the arrivals area of ​​Terminal 4 of the airport, shortly after the family’s flight had arrived. A bus on line 200 of the Madrid Municipal Transport Company was en route to pick up passengers when it ran over the child.
