Shocking Footage Shows Toddler Driving Toy Car Head On Into Rush Hour Traffic
A shocking video of a toddler in China riding a toy into oncoming traffic has generated angry reactions online over social media.
The boy, believed to be around 3-years-old, was caught on CCTV casually riding his toy vehicle right into oncoming traffic as cars try to avoid him. Towards the end of the clip, a police officer arrives on the scene and has a few words with the boy before picking him up and taking him and his toy to safety.
Bernhard Scwartlander, a representative in China for the World Health Organisation, highlighted the exorbitant death toll of children on the roads in China — more than 10,000 children die each year from injuries related to road accidents with more than a third of those children being pedestrians.
“Much more needs to be done to spur the adoption of measures to raise road safety, especially with respect to children,” Scwartlander said.
There was no information regarding who the boy’s parents were or what circumstance left him to be able to ride his toy onto a busy road.
