Tragedy at the Three Kings parade in Málaga on Saturday afternoon when a six year old boy was hit and killed by one of the floats. The incident occurred in plaza general Torrijos just before the procession started. It is thought that the youngster was reaching for a sweet that had been thrown from the float when the accident occurred.
Very good weather for the procession of the Three Kings – Los Reyes Magos – so the streets were crowded and the kids were kept busy trying to grab all the boiled sweets being hurled from the various floats.
