In a video that just seems too insane to actually be true, a dashboard camera captured the moment that a toddler abruptly fell from the back of a van onto a busy highway.
The van is stopped at a traffic light when the kid tumbles out. The poor kid tries his best to waddle after the vehicle, but the van quickly accelerates leaving him in the dust. The toddler is then left to wander around the busy road.
According to Tencent, this incredible incident actually did happen yesterday on a highway near Wujiang, Jiangsu province. Fortunately, the passenger in the car behind the van got out to make sure that the kid was safe.
Eventually, the 2-year-old’s grandfather Yang Defu realized what had happened and hurried back to retrieve the lost toddler.
CCTV reports that the kid’s savior was a warehouse manager named Du Xiuli. She was honored in a ceremony, but waved off praise saying that it is what any mother would do.
Meanwhile, Yang told reporters that his van’s back door had been damaged in a previous collision and occasionally it just randomly flew open on its own. This time his grandkid had happened to climb over the back seat when that occurred.
