#96 Emma's toddler went under both wheels of the 4WD...and survived!

View descriptionShare

The Galloway family were enjoying an idyllic summer holiday together, when their Esperance caravanning paradise was suddenly shattered. The forever smiling and always energetic toddler, Parker, was pushing his scooter around a small bend on the caravan park road, when he disappeared from sight. What happened next, is every parent’s worst nightmare. Two-year-old Parker was run over by a Landcruiser towing a camper trailer. The police officer who saw CCTV of the accident told Parker's parents, Emma and Ryan, that it is a miracle their toddler survived.
