Heartbreaking scene as baby monkey sits next to parent run over by vehicle

It was a tragic, bloody sight as a baby monkey clinged tightly to its family member that was, unfortunately run over by a vehicle.

In the video provided by Christ Jones on Facebook, the infant monkey was seen looking helpless as it held onto its parent’s head and was emitting distraught noises. 

The young monkey then proceeded to climb on top of the body, possibly as an act of protection.
