A child in India has had a lucky escape after he was run over by a car.
CCTV footage captures the horrifying moment the car pulls out and crushes the boy as he ties his laces in front of the car. The boy was playing football in the streets with friends when the incident took place in Goregaon in Mumbai.
The car can be seen slowly reversing out of its parking spot as the children play behind, but the driver appears not to have noticed the crouching child to the front of the vehicle. The car then pulls away and hits the boy who attempts to scrabble himself away momentarily, before the vehicle drives over the top of him and out of shot.
As the boy disappears under the car, it is hard not to fear the worst for the child, but unbelievably, the child immediately gets back to his feet and rejoins his friends, seemingly unscathed.
That said, the footage stops with the child still running, so there is a chance he ran all the way home in tears, rather than getting straight back into the game.
