A baby was flung from a car during an accident in Moscow, onto the pavement and survived according to ABC News on Jan. 23. On a Russian highway, an incident happened on Jan. 20 on an icy patch of road just outside of Moscow. The driver apparently lost control of the car and smashed into an oncoming truck. The child was thrown out of the vehicle and onto the roadway.
The little baby was one lucky child when fortunately, the other drivers swerved to avoid hitting her as she tried to crawl across the roadway to safety. A dashboard camera that was mounted on a passing car unbelievably caught the whole thing on video.
Evidently, instead of placing the infant in a secured baby seat, the 53-year-old driver allowed the child to ride on a shelf that was under the back windshield. When the driver was trying to pass another car on the icy road, he lost control of the vehicle and the baby was thrown out of the car. The child landed face down on the roadway. She suffered some injuries to her head, but none of the injuries appeared to be life threatening.
In the video, it shows a large truck narrowly missing the baby as it slams on its breaks. The parents then quickly run to the little girl's aid as another truck is seen heading down the road. Many drivers in Russia use dashboard cameras to document evidence in case of an accident because driving conditions are so dangerous there. Child car seats are not used in two-thirds of vehicles carrying children in Russia.
