It was Sunday afternoon and singer Paul Black was returning home from the playground with his two young children when the hand-break on his Range Rover failed.
His one-year-old daughter Pearl died in the accident, and Paul suffered serious injuries trying to use his body as a human shield in an attempt to protect his daughter from the out-of-control vehicle, The Sun reports.
The little girl, who would have been two next month, was flown to hospital from the family’s home in South Wales.
Police believe the car’s hand-break failed, and the steepness of the driveway caused the car to gather speed.
