[Watch] Mother and child escape falling car

A mother and child were knocked off a sloping road in China on Sunday (February 12) by a reversing jeep that went out of control, a surveillance video shows.

The footage shows a jeep crashing into the pair as it reverses, taking them along as it plunges a few metres down into what appears to be the entrance of a parking lot.

The woman is then seen scrambling to get herself and the child out of the way as the vehicle lands a few seconds later on to the ground.

Identified as “Mrs. Dai”, the woman told state broadcaster CCTV that she had “freaked out”.

She suffered multiple fractures and was in a coma, CCTV said.

Preliminary investigation showed the accident took place after the driver lost control of the vehicle.
