Bernhard Scwartlander, a representative in China for the World Health Organisation, highlighted the exorbitant death toll of children on the roads in China — more than 10,000 children die each year from injuries related to road accidents with more than a third of those children being pedestrians.
“Much more needs to be done to spur the adoption of measures to raise road safety, especially with respect to children,” Scwartlander said.
There was no information regarding who the boy’s parents were or what circumstance left him to be able to ride his toy onto a busy road.
