This is the shocking moment a child is run over by a car that parks on top of him leaving him crushed underneath a front wheel as an angry mob surrounds the vehicle.
The incident was filmed in the area of Abu Jabal in the city of Dayrout in the Egyptian governorate of Asyut and the footage was widely shared on social media on 30th November.
In the video, which reportedly caused shock in the Egyptian region, the child is seen walking across a street with two pals when a car hits him when he is looking in the other direction.
He falls backwards and hits his head hard on the ground before the driver, apparently unaware that he has hit the boy, edges forwards and crushes the child’s torso.
Onlookers tell the male driver to back up and he reverses the car off the youngster’s body.
The group of bystanders then crowds around the boy to check on the extent of his injuries and two people apparently pick him up and carry him to a safe spot as the video ends.
The boy’s parents were reportedly among the crowd helping to pull him to safety.
He was taken to the Assiut University Hospital where he was diagnosed with multiple injuries including a fractured skull and abdominal internal bleeding.
At the time of reporting, the youngster’s condition is said to be serious.
Meanwhile, the driver was arrested and sent before the Public Prosecutor’s Office who will handle the investigation, according to the news site Al Arabiya.
