A dad in China jumped out of the car he was driving to rescue his 4-year-old daughter who had opened the car door by accident while climbing from the back of the car to the front. She fell out onto the middle of a busy street and her dad jumped out of the car, ran back, and quickly scooped her up just as another car was approaching the girl from behind.
The car he was driving kept going before crashing into a tree on the sidewalk. Fortunately no one was hurt.
The entire incident was video-taped by a surveillance camera and you really do have to see it to believe it.
Take a look:
Isn't that amazing?
What reflexes that dad had. He didn't bother to stop his car or pull over, he just jumped from the moving car to save his daughter not caring what would happen to his car -- or even anyone around him. He was willing to do anything it took to save his daughter. It's the way we all hope we'd react in such a scary, crazy situation.
Fortunately, we have car seat and safety belt laws in the U.S., but this is the kind of thing that could happen if we didn't obey them. It's also a really good reminder to keep your kid's car doors locked. They can open them even when they're still pretty small and it's a lesson you don't want to learn the hard way.
That dad must be so very relieved, but I can't help but wonder what he told his wife when he got home.
