(Newser) – A 13-year-old Bronx boy accidentally killed his father last night while trying to park the family’s Porsche SUV, the New York Post reports. The family had just eaten at a restaurant, and waiters heard the boy ask if he could move the car. John Cedeno, 45, stood beside the open passenger-side door, and was pinned against a tree when his son put the vehicle in reverse.

“He was bleeding a lot from his mouth,” one witness said of Cedeno, who was pronounced dead at the scene. The son stood staring, screaming, “I hurt him! I hurt him!” Sources say it is unlikely he will be charged with any wrongdoing.
