Hundreds of mourners gathered and lined up the streets for the funeral of a two-week-old baby that was killed in a horrifying car accident on Easter Sunday.
Little Ciaran died during his first outing when his pram was violently struck by a vehicle. The young child’s funeral procession attracted so many people who didn’t know the little baby personally but felt a connection with him after hearing about his tragic story.
As the procession passed the Brownhills High Street in Walsall in West Mids, many felt the need to pay their condolences and tributes to the little child who passed away during Easter Sunday.
According to media reports, little Ciaran Leigh Morris was with his mother on a stroll outside. This was his first stroll ever, but little did anyone know that it would turn into his last. In the blink of an eye, a vehicle slammed into his pram at Brownhill, at about 4 pm in the afternoon, causing him fatal injuries.
Despite being rushed to the hospital, he succumbed to his wounds, leaving loved ones in a state of absolute shock and grief.
Today, both locals, as well as his family members, recall him with banners, flowers, cards, and soft toys as a means of paying their final respects to the tiny tot. The funeral procession was also accompanied by motorcyclists who bore blue-hued ribbons.
His devastated parents reportedly visited the crash site earlier that day to tie the very first blue ribbon in his memory and honor, identifying the exact railings where the accident had taken place.
The child’s funeral was held at the St John’s Walsall Wood, with tributes being led by Rev David Babbington.
He called the occasion one of great grief while acknowledging all of the loved ones and mourners that had gathered in honor of the young baby.
