Facebook user Khadijah Bint Ali Dida-agun said: “base sa video mahina ang takbo mg sasakyan sadyang ung bata ang tumakbo at sinalubong ang sasakyan which is di nman nakita ngdriver agad!!! ang magulang huwag hayaan nglalaru ang bata sa daan... for me hnd kasalanan ng driver siya pa ang naabala at gagastos same time!! sorry for both of them...”
Here are other reactions of netizens in the on the Facebook video:
John Patrick Tersona Manguera: “In my opinion po. ang may mali po dito ay yung mga sasakyan na naka PARK, na dapat wala sila jan. kung malinis yung kalsada at walang illegal parking hindi po ito mangyayari. sila ang tunay na dapat sisihin. kasi blind spot ng driver yung mga ganyang situation. kaya dapat mabigyan ng solution yung mga nasa illegal parking areas tulad nito na main road pa naman.”
Tintin-suzette David: “Grabe. That is not the driver's fault.mbagl takbo nya biglang tumawid ang bata.parents must make sure not to allow their children to play in the streets, its for their own safety”
Denise Petilla: “I feel sorry for the driver :( you can see how sorry he is and he didn't know what just happened. Dapat mawala na yang mga nagpapark sa gilid ng kalsada. hindi nyo parking area yan. :( I hope the kid is alright!”
