In an unusual move, a toddler in the United States has been reunited with his toy after a horrific car accident.
The accident happened on Friday when an SUV crashed into the back of a small truck, killing six-month-old Rohan Shah.
Rohan Shah’s parents were driving to visit their family in California, where he is currently recovering from a severe brain injury suffered in the crash.
Rohin Shah’s mother, Aruna Shah, said her son was trying to get his attention when the crash happened.
“He was trying, ‘I want to see you guys’,” Aruna said.
“When he heard the noise, he started screaming, and we started running,” she added.
“Then the next thing I know, I hear a crash and he is already on the ground.”
Aruna said she ran towards her son and ran over to him.
“I got him, and he was still on the floor, and I said, ‘Rohan, he is still alive’.”‘
It is hard to talk about’The family said they were lucky to be alive after Rohan was thrown from the SUV and killed.
“We were going home from the grocery store, so I was thinking, ‘We can’t leave him here like this’,” Arunavar Shah said.’
We were worried about him’After a long journey to the hospital, Rohan’s parents said they had to wait until they returned home to get Rohan back.
“It is difficult to talk to him, to talk him to talk,” Aruna told ABC News.
“You can’t imagine what happened to him.”
Arunavard Shah said she had already been worried about her son, but that it was difficult to see him without his toy.
“Even when we went to see Rohan in the hospital the doctors said he would not have survived,” she said.
Ms Shah said her family had been worried Rohan would suffer another serious injury, but the toy helped them comfort each other during their darkest moments.
“The toy was a little bit like a rock, so he was in a lot of trouble,” she told ABC.
“And he could talk, he could sing, and it was really comforting.”
Rohan’s family said the toy will be donated to children’s hospitals.
