A mom and her young child were sent flying into the air after being hit by an exploding lorry tire.
Shocking CCTV footage from a car service shop in of Danjiangkou in Central China’s Hubei province shows a number of workers pumping up the tire before leaning it up against a nearby forklift.
Moments later the tire bursts and flies directly at a mum and her child who are walking through the area. The woman is knocked off her feet and into the air. She loses a grip of her child, who flies out of shot, and ends up on the ground.
As smoke fills the garage, someone can be seen dashing over to help the woman while another goes to pick up the little one. Onlookers help bring the woman indoors before the clip cuts out.
According to local reports, the woman and child were taken to hospital but miraculously managed to escape with just ‘minor scratches’.
