BEXAR COUNTY — Deputies say a 28-year-old mother accidentally backed over her small child while leaving for work Wednesday morning.

"The aunt was 26 years old and she made an attempt to run after her child but she fell down the stairs and hurt her foot," Casillas said.
Emergency responders tried extensively to revive the child but were unsuccessful.
"The aunt was 26 years-old and she made an attempt to run after her child but she fell down the stairs and hurt her foot," Casillas said.
The childs name was not immediately released,
