A 6-year-old boy miraculously survived after a careless driver drove over him, and video of the incident has quickly gone viral.
In the footage, the boy can be seen playing in Jining City located in east China’s Shandong Province. He is playing with Legos at the side of a driveway around 10:51 a.m. when a red SUV pulls up.
The boy suddenly jumps to his feet and runs toward the other side of the street before getting hit by the SUV, which continues on after hitting the boy.
Somehow, the boy stands after being hit and appears to walk away almost unharmed. He then runs back to his house, clutching his back.
Following the accident, the boy was sent to the hospital. He suffered from only a few scratches on his face and legs, but was not majorly injured.
“I cried after I saw the video,” the boy’s grandfather said. “He was so lucky to have survived.”
According to local traffic policeman Xu Liyan, the boy survived because of his small size and because the chassis of the car was so high. Additionally, the boy had conveniently fallen between both the car’s wheels and therefore managed to escape almost completely unharmed.
