Surveillance footage has shown a father jumping out of a moving car to carry his daughter to safety seconds after she tumbled out of the vehicle at a busy intersection in China, state media CCTV reported.
Police in Wenzhou, Zhejiang province, said the four-year-old girl had opened the door accidentally while climbing from the back of the car to the front.
According to police reports:
The father, without stopping the moving car, quickly leapt out of the same door to scoop her up off the road, surveillance video showed. The black car continued its course for about 10 metres before it hit a tree on the curb and came to a halt.
The girl escaped the incident with minor bruises.
