This is the horrific moment a woman driver runs over a boy’s head and also runs over his two pals as well after she fails to notice them playing on the street.
Yet incredibly all three survived.
The accident happened in the city of Pingxiang in East China’s Jiangsu Province on 27th January and incredibly all three of the boys escaped without serious injury.
The woman driver, surnamed Yang, was returning to the Huiheng-Jianshanyuan residential area in her white Buick saloon car.

Footage shows the three boys playing near the road on a side street when Yang makes a right turn and fails to notice either of the children.
She knocks one of the boys to the ground and drives over his head, while also driving over the legs of his playmate lying right next to him.
The third child appears to be pushed along the road by the nearby boy and suffers no injuries despite ending up underneath the car too.
In the video, Yang finally stops after several feet and gets out the car in a panic as other adults – presumably the children’s family members – come rushing to the scene of the accident.
Authorities say two of the boys suffered minor injuries but continue to be monitored in hospital.
One, surnamed Ouyang, aged five, was diagnosed with head injuries including an inner-ear bleed. The other, surnamed Xiao, also aged five, suffered abrasions to his left arm.
Further investigation is under way.
