Wentzhou, 13 Dec., 2011
In a mind-blowing incident a child of five years in China escaped death providentially, despite being run over by a massive vehicle.
The incident took place at Wentzhou, Zhejiang Province when a driver of a Honda CRV began reversing at the entrance to a lane. He was about to drive away in another direction when a little girl squabbling with two women passed by.
The petulant child seemed to be arguing with the older women and actually refusing to walk to school. Then without a word she squatted right in the middle of the road, even as the elders strolled ahead.
It was then that the Honda CRV driver turned and not having seen the child rolled the 1.6-ton 4x4 vehicle over her. However, once he realized he had driven the car over the child, he immediately stopped the car. Meanwhile, hordes of passersby gathered around and quickly came to the child’s rescue.
They eventually managed to lift up the 4x4 heavy- vehicle; and rescue the girl, who was immediately taken to the hospital. It’s a miracle that the child escaped with barely any injuries. After a check up at hospital, the young girl was able to go to school.
The entire episode was captured live on CCTV camera. (click here)
One of the ladies Qian, 74, who helped rescue the child said: "Save the child. That is what we should do first. Everybody should pitch in the work. While another bystander Ms Zhou, added: "People should help each other like this."
