A 10-year-old girl who is fighting for her life following a hit-and-run incident has been described as "a little hero" by her family as police question three men about the collision.
Sabah Saleem and her two-year-old brother, Rayhan, were knocked down by a car in Brudenell Road, Hyde Park, Leeds, on Saturday.
Relatives have said Sabah was the most severely injured, probably because she was protecting her younger brother from the impact.
Three men are currently being questioned by police after being arrested in connection with the incident.
At the scene today, the children's aunt, Saima Rafiquee said: "Most likely what happened is that Sabah tried protecting her brother and she took the brunt of the accident.
"She's just a little hero, isn't she?
"It just shows you how a big sister would react with a younger brother."
The aunt of a girl injured in a hit and run has called her a 'hero', believing she bore the brunt of the impact to protect her brother.
A 36-year-old man has been arrested after a hit-and-run which left a two-year-old boy and his 10-year-old sister fighting for their lives.
