NYC father in mourning after his autistic 4-year-old son died from being hit by a car hours after his 18-year-old son's funeral

A New York father is in deep mourning after he lost two of his sons in one month. Hours after leaving his 18-year-old son’s funeral, his 4-year-old autistic son ran into the street and was struck by a car.

Michael McDonald says that his 4-year-old son, Domantea Mcdonald, was outside a family member’s house in Jamaica Queens when he broke away from his mother’s arms and ran out into the street to oncoming traffic. Domantea was struck by a Toyota RAV4 right before his mother, who suffered a foot injury trying to save the child, could pull him away.

“There’s nothing inside me. There’s nothing. I’m empty,’’ said Michael McDonald said to the NY Post. “I just came from burying my [older] son. [Domantea] was only here for a split second to see me. … He wasn’t supposed to leave the world like that.”

Domantea did not die immediately off impact, but instead crawled to his mother screaming in pain, according to witnesses. He then lost consciousness and was later pronounced dead at the hospital. This is a scene that Michael will never forget.

“I started bugging out. He wasn’t sleepy, but it looked like he was falling asleep. I said, ‘No, wake him up, wake him up, wake him up!’ ” he recalled to The NY Post. “He wasn’t breathing. He died right there. He didn’t die in no hospital. He died right here. I watched him leave his body right here because [First Responders] let him crawl.

Michael’s older son Tysheem, whose funeral they went to earlier that day, died from gun violence on August 7. Michael says he knew that his son was in the streets and tried to help him, but he “wanted to be his own man”.

“Tysheem lived in the streets. I accepted it. That was my son. I couldn’t tell him nothing. His mother couldn’t tell him, his uncles couldn’t tell him. He wanted to be his own man,” he said. “But he loved his little brother.”
