BEIJING (AFP) - A two-year-old Chinese girl who was thrown to the ground by a man in his 40s during a row with her mother over parking has died, state media reported on Saturday.

The toddler died on Thursday night in hospital in Beijing where she was receiving treatment for the injuries suffered during the incident on Tuesday, the China Daily reported. The death has also been reported by the Beijing News.

A witness told the Beijing Times earlier in the week that the man, identified only by his surname Han, wanted to park by a bus stop in Beijing.

But the toddler's mother, who was on foot, would not move out of his way as she was checking on her daughter at the time.
