A disturbing video has gone viral online showing a kid squatting down on the road to play before being run over by a car while all the while a woman holding a baby nearby watches and does nothing.
In the clip, the woman standing just a few feet away from the impending accident appears to notice both the small child on the road and the vehicle headed straight for him, but fails to offer a word of warning. After the little boy is run over, she continues to stand motionless rather than check on the kid.
Fortunately, the driver of the vehicle stopped immediately after running over the child and quickly drove him to the hospital where doctors found that he miraculously suffered only superficial wounds.
Meanwhile, the child’s mother has criticized the woman, claiming that if she had spoken up then the accident could have been prevented.
Of course, the accident also could have been prevented if the mother kept a better eye on her kid.
