This is the moment a young boy run over by a passing car after he runs across the road pops back up unscathed.
The incident was captured in full by another vehicle’s dashcam as the three-year-old and his mother left a Hindu temple following evening prayer on 5th October.
In the footage from two-lane Depot Walk in Singapore, the boy is seen running away from his mum to cross the road as they leave Sri Ruthra Kaliamman Temple.
He emerges out the front of a parked car, and the approaching driver, who has not been named, fails to spot the tot and knocks him to the ground in front of his shocked mother.
The red saloon car keeps going and the boy disappears under the chassis before re-emerging a second later, seemingly unharmed as his runs over to check on him.
According to reports, the police were not called immediately after the incident, with the boy driven by the saloon owner to the National University Hospital for treatment.
He is understood to be in stable condition as Singapore police say they were still looking into the case.
Local reports have noted that parking outside the Hindu temple is forbidden, but it is unclear whether any owners of parked vehicles outside the temple face fines for the offence.
