Marina Matveeva, 54, one of the eye witnesses said, “I was going for a walk when I saw this car suddenly go onto the grass and head towards the mum and her children. When it hit them, the stroller went spinning through the air and one of the babies landed very near to the car’s rear wheel. The driver was about to reverse, but the mother screamed so loudly he stopped. If he hadn’t [stopped] he would have surely crushed the baby. She threw her body over theirs to protect them.”
