This is the incredible moment a young boy is knocked out of his dad’s car by reckless street racers and onto a busy motorway as motorists veer and brake hard to avoid crushing him to death.
The incident was filmed on the North-South Expressway in Malaysia after the dad’s car was rammed by a car taking part in an illegal race, with other drivers braking hard to avoid hitting the two-year-old lying on the fast lane.
In the dashcam footage, a blue Honda Jazz and a white Perodua Myvi are seen racing each other.
The white car swerves across two lanes and appears to ram another car.
Moments later, the filming motorist approaches the scene and a small boy is seen lying on the tarmac.
Reports said the incident took place at around 3.20pm on 10th February near the Ayer Keroh Melaka-Senawang stretch of the motorway.
Police superintendent Ibrahim Abd Kadir said: “One of the cars suddenly changed direction and veered towards a Honda Civic, which was in the middle lane.”
He explained that the Honda driver panicked, hit the central reservation and rear-ended another car.
Kadir added: “As a result of the crash, a passenger in the Civic, a two-year-old boy, was thrown out of the car and landed in the fast lane.”
It is believed the boy was sitting on his mum’s lap at the time, and was thrown out of the window when the vehicle was rammed by the white car.
He was then taken to a hospital in the city of Seremban for treatment.
Paidaiah Ramu, sister of the Honda driver, identified as Sirrah Sitrah, shared images on social media asking for netizens for more information on the other vehicles involved.
According to reports, the police have identified the vehicles involved in the alleged race.
The investigation continues.
