Incredible video hit the Chinese Internet earlier today of a 4-year-old boy getting knocked down and run over by a minivan, and then getting right back up like nothing happened.
According to Sina, the footage is from a Nanjing neighborhood on March 9th. Somehow, the boy suffered only a minor injury to his head after getting completely ran over by a van.
Meanwhile, the driver of the van didn’t stop after running over a 4-year-old child. He is currently being held by police while investigations are made.

Of course, any time that a child gets run over in China, it makes you think of the tragic story of Little Yue Yue, who in October 2010 was run over twice and left clinging to life in a Foshan alley, overlooked by at least 18 passers-by. Finally, a female trash collector saw her and called for help. She was sent to the hospital where she died eight days later.
This specific case bears a strong resemblance to an incident also caught on video in Fujian last year in which a 2-year-old boy was ran over by a car, and managed to crawl back to his feet.
