Malachi watched as his 6-year-old friend turned his Christmas bike in the intersection of their Ellenwood subdivision to ride the 100 or so yards back to his house by the cul-de-sac. They had strayed against the instruction of his mother.
Then tragedy struck. “The car came around and hit him,” Malachi, 5, told The Atlanta Journal Constitution Friday. “I thought he was dead.”
Malachi stood over his friend, weeping, while his 9-year-old sister, Zamya, ran over and jostled the injured boy’s shoulder.
