Inches from death: The shocking moment a little girl falls out of a car and almost gets run over before crawling out of the way in the nick of time.
Shocking dashcam video footage has emerged showing the dramatic moment a little girl tumbles out of a moving car on a busy street before she narrowly avoids being run over.
The video, uploaded to social media, shows cars backed up on a busy road in Bangkok, Thailand. When the lights turn green a car takes off, but not before a passenger door flies open and a toddler falls heavily onto the street.
Seemingly unaware of the disembarked passenger, the driver of the car then takes off, narrowly avoiding crushing the young girl as she manages to crawl away in the nick of time.
Travellers in the car behind can be heard gasping as the girl pops out of the car, while the rear left wheel misses the child by a small margin.
As the car continues to move without its passenger and with the door wide open, the toddler begins to crawl along the busy road.
The child then jumps to her feet, running towards the car in a desperate effort to get to safety.
The driver of the car then jumps out of the passenger-side door and scoops the girl up before driving off.
The footage was uploaded to Facebook by Pornpilin Aeamsaad, who said the dramatic scene was filmed on August 7.
Ms Aeamsaad told Daily Mail Australia the video was recorded from her father’s car.
‘If you have a small child take their safety seriously, their life is important and it is your responsibility,’ she said.
In posting the video, Ms Aeamsaad said she wanted the video to be ‘an example’ for parents, suggesting child car seats be used for young passengers. – Mailonline
