Finlay Collins in hospital. A furious mum has issued a heartbreaking photo as a stark warning to drivers after her eight-year-old lad was left wheelchair-bound and begging to die. See ROSS PARRY story RPYWARN. Michelle Collins thought her youngest, Finlay, was dead when she caught sight of his "ripped bloodstained Liverpool shirt." The horrified mum watched him go under the wheels of a van before he came out of the back of the vehicle like a "crisp packet blowing in the wind". Finlay - who will be in a wheelchair for at least 12 months - was knocked off his scooter in July, fracturing his skull and badly injuring his leg. His mum said her son's suffering was " indescribable" since the accident, adding he "begs to die".
