WINNIPEG- A red teddy bear holding a heart marks the spot in a back lane east of Toronto street, where three-year-old Robert Scherban was hit by car Sunday afternoon. He later died of his injuries.
The little boy’s father Robert Sherban told Global News on Monday, that his son was playing in the neighbour’s yard, while he worked on the roof.
The three-year-old apparently wandered into the back lane to get a toy boat when the a vehicle turned from Notre Dame and struck him around 4:00 o’clock Sunday.
Winnipeg police say the driver stopped immediately and called 911.
The child’s father tells Global News he attempted CPR while waiting for paramedics.
Sherban says he will do everything to make his son proud.
“I miss you,” he said during an interview Monday, recalling the smiles on the little boy’s face when they attended the Red River Ex recently.
Neighbours say Sherban was a good dad and that his little boy was everything to him.
Winnipeg police say no charges have been laid and speed and alcohol are not considered factors in the incident.
Police continue to investigate.
