“Medical staff believes that the child will make a full recovery,” Worcester Police said in a release.

According to the police, the girl’s mother said both of her children (a four-year-old and the 23-month-old) were indoors when she went to move her car in the driveway. As she drove forward, she felt a bump and stopped.

When she got out and saw her daughter, she immediately called 911.

The Department of Children and Families were notified, and the investigation is still underway.
