The girl has, however, come out of the coma but her condition is still unstable.
An ambulance and medics rushed to the house of the little girl on Sunday when the accident happened. She was rushed to the emergency section of Saqr Hospital where she was resuscitated.
Dr Yusuf Al Tayer, director of Saqr Hospital, said the medical team has been doing their best to rescue the child.
"She was admitted first to the double-resuscitation unit and then to the intensive care unit where she has been put on artificial respiration."
A medical source told Khaleej Times that the baby's condition is absolutely unstable. "However, she is now aware of everything around."
20% drop in road deaths
Meanwhile, there has been a significant drop of 20 per cent in the number of traffic deaths in Ras Al Khaimah during the first nine months of this year.
Official records show that 45 people were killed between January and September this year.
Brigadier Ghanim Ahmed Ghanim, director-general of the central operations room, RAK Police, on Tuesday said there were 56 deaths during the corresponding period last year.
The number of road deaths is a significant indicator about road safety, and reflects the effort being exerted in collaboration with all the bodies concerned here to ensure road users' safety and boost traffic performance, he added.
"Road users need to observe traffic rules and regulations, mainly speed limits and traffic signals. They have also to be attentive on the road, never use the cell phone while driving, abide by lane laws, leave enough space, always buckle-up, and give priority to pedestrians," he added.
