NBC Nightly News published this terrifying video of a toddler in Suzhou, China, tumbling from the back of a minivan in heavy traffic. The whole incident was caught by the dashboard camera of the car following behind-this same motorist also stopped his car and jumped out to rescue the child.
The child was driving with his grandfather, who had no idea he had climbed over the back seat and fallen out of the back. According to the UK Daily Mirror, child safety car seats are not common in China. The grandfather also reported that the car’s back hatch had been damaged in a recent accident an that it would sometimes come open on it’s own.
Another driver chased down the stunned Grandpa, who soon returned for his grandson, who by some miracle was unhurt.
WOW! This video makes me super-thankful for the strict car seat laws in the U.S.! And for angels watching over us and bystanders who become everyday heroes. So thankful this little tyke is safe!
