A mother has been charged with attempted murder after allegedly trying to drive over her seven-year-old son, not once but TWICE!

*Distressing news

The 39-year-old woman allegedly drove into Corrigans Beach Reserve at Batehaven where the boy was walking.

The young boy was walking in the reserve when his mother tried to hit him with her car, twice.

Witnesses helped the boy, who’s in Batemans Bay Hospital with a suspected fractured collarbone.

The mother has been refused bail and will face Bega Local Court on Tuesday on several charges including attempted murder and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

  • Why would a mother want to run over her child? She must be suffering mental health.


  • Difficult to understand what we read here ! Even more difficult it must be for this boy to understand what his mother tried to do to him, not only now but also later…this will have a huge impact on his development ! Hope indeed this boy is removed from his mums care forever.


  • What? I hope he’s ok and staying with someone who will look after him! Poor little boy, my heart goes out to him. I hope he didn’t realise it was his mum in the car.


  • Oh my! I hope that this child will be taken away from her forever!


  • Seriously what has this world come too?


  • Horrific, just horrific, I have no words. He is so lucky to have escaped with just a broken collarbone! And the mother!!! I just have no words :(


  • I hope the boy makes a full recovery. I suspect he made need physiotherapy to get movement back in his collarbone. What sort of Mum would do that to her own child? No child deserves to suffer at the hands of a parent…or anybody. I hope they charge her time + time, not the two to be served in the same time length.


  • What a horrible woman…I wonder what goes through their heads


  • There is something terribly wrong with this woman. Thank goodness the boy will be okay. Hopefully he now has a chance to grow up in a healthy environment without his mother.


  • What the hell ..he is 7. What could possibly make her want to do this. Thank God he is ok


  • How horrifying for that poor child.


  • This is just awful. There must be something really wrong with this woman to do such a thing.


  • I saw this in a news article before. Terrible. I wonder why? Drugs perhaps
