A bulldozer driver killed a 3-year-old girl while backing up in Zhangpu county, Fujian province, on Wednesday morning.

Chen Saijiao, 54, of Linqian village, Duxun town, spotted a bulldozer pushing mud on one of her fields and attempted to stop it.

Because she only spoke a local dialect, she could not communicate with the driver, who was from another county. Chen's 3-year-old granddaughter was playing behind the bulldozer when it began to back up.

Chen tried to stop the vehicle, but the driver did not understand what she was saying, and ran over the girl.

She suffered leg and brain injuries and died at a hospital, according to the provincial news portal

The county Party committee's publicity department issued a notice on Wednesday, saying workers were building a path near Chen's fields and mistakenly pushed mud on one of her fields.
