Girl Hit by Forklift

KALIHI (KHNL) - Many parents take precautions to keep their kids away from cars backing up.

But in Kalihi Saturday evening a child was backed over by a forklift.

The accident happened at an industrial warehouse on Kokea Street off of Dillingham Boulevard.

And the person behind the wheel of the forklift was the young girl's own father who severely injured the three-year-old girl.

Now police are investigating exactly what happened.

"We don't know why the child got behind the forklift, just an accident," said Thomas Taflinger of the Honolulu Police Department.

The young girl was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.
