This is the tragic moment when a father loses his balance and accidentally kills his son as they play in a supermarket in China.

A CCTV footage shows the man holding hands with his young kid while wandering around a supermarket in Guangzhou, China.


But as the boy leans back on his father’s arms, the man loses his balance and accidentally falls on top of the kid.


A nearby woman quickly comes to help the man get up but the fall has already broken the kid’s neck.

Unconfirmed reports said that the boy was immediately brought to the hospital but later died.

According to South China Morning via Guangzhou Television, a pediatrician said: ‘In the video, the man’s entire weight was on the upper body of the child, including the boy’s head and neck. The child might have suffered a cervical fracture.’
