SINGAPORE -A toddler suffered minor head injuries after he was knocked over by a food delivery worker riding an e-scooter along a crowded corridor on the fourth storey of Nex shopping mall.
The three-year-old child was hit on the forehead by the e-scooter and fell backwards, striking his head on the floor on March 18.
He was taken to National University Hospital where he was diagnosed with a bruised forehead and mild tenderness to the back of his head. He was discharged later that day.
Neo Jia Ming, 20, pleaded guilty on Thursday (June 27) to causing hurt to the child by riding the e-scooter in a rash manner in the Serangoon Central mall.
The toddler, who cannot be named due to his age, was walking out of a shop towards his mother at around 7pm on March 18 when Neo spotted him but could not stop in time.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Nicholas Lai told District Judge May Mesenas: "The e-scooter hit the victim on his forehead, causing him to fall backwards (and) led to (him) hitting his head against the floor."
