"She got out of the door to unlock her front gate, and her sister was screaming she had run over the child," explained Lt. Dennis Casillas of the Bexar County Sheriff's Office
The boy had been standing in the doorway of their home with his aunt waving goodbye when he suddenly broke free and chased after his mom. He died at the scene.
