A 4-year-old boy was killed and his mother was badly injured Thursday evening when they were hit by a bus in Brooklyn after the boy darted into the street, the police said.

The two were struck just before 6:30 p.m. at Oriental Boulevard and Falmouth Street in Manhattan Beach.

The authorities said that the woman, 45, was walking with her son near Manhattan Beach Park when he suddenly ran into the street.

The boy, Evan Svirsky, was pronounced dead at Coney Island Hospital.

His mother was listed in stable condition at Lutheran Medical Center on Thursday night, the authorities said. They did not release the mother’s name.
