VIDEO: Terrifying moment when a boy rides toy car into heavy traffic
LISHUI, China: A toddler was filmed by road cameras riding his toy car into heavy traffic in Lishui, Zhejiang province.
Traffic camera footage from the busy road in Lishui shows the boy, reported to be only 1 year old, scooting his toy car against traffic during rush hour while vehicles swerve around him.
The boy is eventually grabbed by a police officer and carried to safety.
“The boy was dangerously close to traffic, so I picked him up and took him onto the pavement,” the police officer, Wu Feng, told reporters. “He told me he had become separated from his mother and was looking for her.”
The World Health Organization’s representative in China said the incident highlighted the need for additional road safety regulations in the country.
