The woman’s silver car pulls out into the unnamed schoolboy, aged 15, as he is cycling past and knocks him off his bike.
Despite the collision, the woman driver does not stop and continues to drive to the other side of the street, running the boy over and dragging him under her car several feet before finally stopping.
The distressing footage shows the boy’s legs moving side to side beneath the chassis of the car as over half a dozen passersby rush over to help him.
The rescuers lift the car off the boy, and footage shows him being treated by paramedics a few minutes later.
The pupil, who attends Zhangshu No 2 Middle School, is said to be in stable condition.
He is being treated for multiple abrasions but is not in any life-threatening condition.
Reports did not say whether the driver was arrested after the accident.
