She was taking her three-year-old son home after lessons ended at the Bukit Batok childcare centre.
The mother, who wanted to be known only as Mrs Gao, was strapping his schoolbag on the stroller outside the centre at Blk 531 Bukit Batok St 51.
“I heard the sound of bicycle wheels approaching very fast. My child was about three steps away from me.
“Before I had time to react, the bicycle crashed into him and pinned him to the ground.”
What cyclist’s mother says
The woman, known only as Sisi, visited the toddler in hospital yesterday morning.
She told Wanbao over the phone that, as a mother, she felt deeply apologetic for what happened:
Mrs Gao said Sisi offered to pay for her son’s medical fees and the family’s airfare cancellation.
She added: “I hope this incident would serve as a reminder to others not to cycle along flat corridors.”
