A toddler on Sunday fell out of the trunk of a moving van and was brought to safety by the driver behind in the city of Suzhou in east China’s Jiangsu Province.

The scene was captured by a dashcam in the car behind.

The two-year-old boy got out of the front passenger seat, crawled to the back seats, and fell out of the van from the trunk as his grandfather, the driver, just started the car after waiting at a red light.

The video showed the toddler climbing up on his feet and running after the van. The grandfather noticed nothing and drove away.

The car behind pulled carefully to the side and picked up the boy before it went after the grandfather.

“I was waiting at the red light. After passing the intersection a car chased after me and kept sounding the horn. The driver told me a kid fell out of my van. I looked back, parked my van aside, and went back to search for my grandson,” said Yang Defu, the toddler’s grandfather.

Yang ran back to the intersection and retrieved his grandson from the good Samaritans.

Yang said that the van was rear-ended the other day, and the trunk lid became loose.
