Coffee Talk: 8-Year Old Boy Killed by Father During Fourth of July Parade

A 8-year old boy in Oklahoma was pronounced dead after being run over by a float during his local Fourth of July Parade. According to the police, he was riding on a martial arts group float before he got off or fell down at the end of the parade. Police officer James Hamm says the boy was then struck by the truck and flatbed part of the float and fell to the ground before being run over by the driver- which happens to be his father.

It is also reported that many people witnessed the freak accident before the boy was pronounced dead at the hospital. His father is not being charged at this time.
