A 15-month-old Redlands boy was died Thursday morning after being run over by a car driven by a family member at their home, police said.

Alexander Theodore suffered upper-body trauma when he was struck by a 2007 Subaru about 8 a.m. in the 300 block of South Eureka Street.

He was taken to Redlands Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later, according to information provided by the Redlands Police Department and San Bernardino County coroner’s office.

The boy’s mother, a doctor, administered CPR until paramedics arrived, police said.

[Update: 8:24 p.m. The mother was driving the car and believed the child was safely away from the vehicle. The child was declared dead at the hospital. They were continuing to perform advanced lifesaving actions until then.]

The Redlands Police Department is investigating the incident.
