Two-year-old boy falls out of moving van in China

A two-year-old boy fell out of the back of his grandfather's moving van along a busy road in China.

The nail-biting moment was captured last Saturday (Feb 27) on the dashcam of a car driving behind, in the city of Suzhou in China's Jiangsu Province.

In the 10-second video, the toddler is seen tumbling out of the vehicle onto the road. The child then stood and attempted to chase after the van as it continued on its way.

His grandfather, identified in Chinese media as Yang Defu, said that his minivan had recently been in a rear-end collision, which broke the vehicle's tailgate lock.

The boy, who initially had been sitting in a passenger seat, had crawled to the back of the van and accidentally hit the broken lock as the vehicle accelerated from an intersection.

"I was waiting at the red light. After passing the intersection a car chased after me and kept sounding the horn," Yang told CCTV. 

"The driver told me a kid fell out of my van. I looked back, parked my van aside, and went back to search for my grandson."

Local media reported that the boy was rescued soon after by another driver and reunited with his grandfather.
