In yet another example of why it is of utmost importance to be very careful while crossing the road, a video of a child stopping in the middle of the road to tie his shoelaces and getting run over by a car going viral online. After all, a single act of negligence on the part of the driver or the pedestrian can lead to fatal accidents. But a curious twist of fate can also lead to miraculous escape. Something similar happened in China’s Yueqing County on November 13, when a car ran over a boy – but thankfully he was saved.
In a video shared by China Global Television Network (CGTN) on Twitter, one can see a boy stopping on the road to tie his shoelaces when a car comes and almost runs him over. It is the schoolbag of the boy that saves him as the driver, a woman, quickly runs out to help the boy. According to reports, the boy was saved and was rushed to the hospital.
