This is the shocking moment a motorist pulls away and at least two wheels run over a young boy playing on the tarmac in front of his vehicle.

The incident was filmed in the city of Lujan in the eastern Argentine province of Buenos Aires, and the seven-year-old boy was taken to a hospital in the city of General Rodriguez.

According to reports, the pickup truck driver started his vehicle just when the boy appeared with a toy and sat on the road to play with it.
