I was heartbroken to hear about the tragic accident that happened in Volos, Greece over the weekend. An elderly grandfather was crossing the street with his 3-month-old grandson in his arms when a motorcycle came speeding down the road. It struck the grandfather, causing the poor infant to be flung from his arms onto the pavement. The baby died instantly from the impact.
As a parent myself, I can’t even imagine the pain and grief the family must be experiencing after such an unthinkable loss. My heart breaks for the grandfather as well, who was likely doing nothing more than enjoying a walk with his beloved grandchild on a Saturday evening. Witnesses say the motorcycle driver was maneuvering recklessly when he hit the man and baby.
No family should have to endure such a senseless tragedy. The accident highlights how in a split second, lives can be forever changed by careless actions. As we go about our daily lives, we must remember to be vigilant of others, especially the most vulnerable around us. My deepest condolences go out to all those grieving this innocent life lost so soon. I hope the family can find comfort in one another during this impossibly difficult time.
