A similar case had already occurred in Velbert at the end of May 2020 when a family wanted to visit a park. According to the Mettmann district police, the 24-year-old father initially stopped at the entrance, but then wanted to park the car. When he reset, he apparently overlooked his three-year-old daughter, who had already left the car.
The girl was thrown from the car to the ground and rolled over by a wheel. He died of serious injuries in the hospital shortly afterwards.
