When Sajan rushed a severely injured boy to a hospital on Sunday, little did he realise at that point that it was his own son who was dying in his lap.
Just a short while ago, a private bus had ran over two students who were returning home after tuition classes in Pala in Kottayam.
While one of the students was thrown away due to the impact of the hit, the other boy came under the wheels of the bus.
Sajan was passing by the spot of the accident and when he saw the boy under the bus laying in a pool of blood on the road, he decided to take him to the hospital.
Sajan reportedly took him to the hospital, laying the boy on his laps. It was only after they reached the hospital when Sajan realized that the injured boy was his 13-year-old son Adarsh who had succumbed to his injuries on the way, Manorama News reported.
Adarshâ€™s friend Christy, the other victim, was brought to the hospital in another vehicle. He has been severely injured in the accident and been admitted to the Kottayam Medical College Hospital.
Angered over the incident, a mob later gathered at the spot and tried to set the bus on fire before the police intervened and controlled them. Media reports state that the accident was caused as the driver of the bus was over-speeding.
