He took the youngster out for a spin on the tractor in Bursa, Turkey, yesterday.

But while the vehicle was in motion, Utku slipped off after losing his balance and was crushed by one of the wheels.

The schoolboy was rushed to Orhangazi State Hospital where medics fought to save him.

Sadly, he died from his serious injuries.

Salih was arrested by cops, but it is unclear whether he faces charges.

Tragic Utku had a heart condition since birth and had undergone surgery only last year.

He leaves behind a grieving mum Gamze, dad Aslan Soyaslan, and a younger sibling.

The Orhangazi Public Prosecutor’s Office has launched an investigation into the incident.

It comes after an inquest heard how another toddler died of a head injury after being hit by a tractor.

Albie Speakman, three, died after he was hit by the farm vehicle in Bury, Gtr Manchester on July 16.
