In the outskirts of Kherson, russian occupiers shelled a car with civilians with an infant on board. The car caught fire, and the baby’s grandfather died, while her mother is in critical condition. This was reported on Telegram by the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Ihor Klymenko.
"At noon, the russians shelled a car in the outskirts of Kherson with artillery, in which an infant and her family members were returning from a medical examination", - he said.
According to Klymenko, the car caught fire as a result of the impact.
"The 36-year-old mother is in critical condition in the hospital. The driver died. It is likely that this is the 64-year-old grandfather of the child. The identity will be determined by forensic experts, as the body was practically completely burned", - noted the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
The two-month-old baby was transported to the Kherson hospital with a police escort. Preliminary diagnosis indicates a blast injury to the head.
"The baby’s condition is of moderate severity. Doctors are providing the necessary assistance and fighting for the life of her mother", - added the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
