A mother and her son avoided being run over by a car after being knocked over on a road in eastern China. The video, filmed in the city of Taizhou in Zhejiang Province on May 30, shows a car knocking over a scooter with a mother and her son on it. The motorist then came out of her car to check them but she forgot to shift the gear. So the car started to slide forward until it crashed into the guardrails on the roadside. Since the mother stood up quickly and carried her son away from the front of the car, they avoided being run over by the vehicle. Only the child suffered minor injuries, reports said.
