Rescuers rushed to a patient during the pandemic when it was alleged they forgot to sound the siren.

Then when the ambulance had to back up onto the sidewalk, this large vehicle ran over the seven-year-old girl.

The ambulance team searched but failed to save the girl’s life after she suffered severe brain damage.

The driver was rushed out of the scene amid anger from residents and feared he would be attacked, it was reported.

“I want to show everyone who [they] killed, ”Alexey said, sharing footage of his baby girl.

“Whatever happens to him, it won’t change anything for me,” said the grieving father.

“Whatever we do to him now, even if he’s lynched, no one returns anything to me.” I don’t know what to do.

“My wife is lying there, just looking at one spot. I wanna show everyone who [they] kill.”

A criminal case was opened against the driver, who was on his way to pick up a patient at a time when Russia was experiencing record Covid-19 infections.

Alexey says the ambulance did not need to back up on a pedestrian lane to access the patient.

Ambulance sources said the road works were preventing the driver from reaching the patient via an alternate route.

“My child suffered open head wounds and multiple rib fractures, indicating that he simply crushed her,” the grieving father said.

“At first the ambulance hit her in the back, she fell and hit the sidewalk with her head.”

Dr Irina Bolshakova, chief medical officer of the Novosibirsk emergency hospital, said: “The traffic police officers who worked at the scene will assess what happened.”

The ambulance couldn’t find another way around a “construction site,” she said.
