Shocking Footage Captures Moment Baby Falls From Van

A shocking video showing a 10-month-old baby falling out of a van as it makes a turn has appeared online.

The clip, which has since been viewed more than three million times, was filmed in Changzhou city's Xinbei District in China's eastern Jiangsu Province, and shows the tiny tot fall from the truck as her parents make a left turn. The baby appears to fall from an open or broken door.

However, seemingly unaware their child has just fallen from the window, the parents continue driving.

Thankfully, there were no other cars using the road at the time and witnesses are reported to have rushed over to rescue the baby.

According to local reports, the parents realised they had lost their child when they stopped at some traffic lights and turned back to find strangers looking after the 10-month-old.

Miraculously, the baby was not seriously injured in the fall, but was taken to a local hospital for a check-up.

It is not known if the child's parents will face any charges or be investigated by police about the incident.

On Chinese video-sharing website Miaopai, people have been quick to condemn the parents, with one user writing: "This kind of person should not be responsible to have children, and if you have children, you must treat them seriously."

Another said: "There is no safety seat. It's time to investigate the parents." Others called the parents 'careless'.
