As parents and guardians, we have full responsibility to ensure our kids are safe always, homes, schools or out.
According to CDC, Motor vehicle injuries are a leading cause of death among children in the United States. But many of these deaths can be prevented.
- In the United States, 663 children ages 12 years and younger died as occupants in motor vehicle crashes during 2015, and more than 121,350 were injured in 2014.
- One CDC study found that, in one year, more than 618,000 children ages 0-12 rode in vehicles without the use of a child safety seat or booster seat or a seat belt at least some of the time.
- Of the children ages 12 years and younger who died in a crash in 2015 (for which restraint use was known), 35% were not buckled up.
A very shocking video has emerged showing the heart-stopping moment a toddler dramatically tumbled out of a car and landed in the road after she managed to open the door while her parents drove.
The child, who was not strapped into a car seat, can be seen landing in the middle of the road while her unsuspecting mother continued on the journey.
A little while later, the car suddenly comes to a halt and the driver dashes back for the child. The incident took place in the city of Hsinchu, in north-western Taiwan, where the child was lucky enough not to be run over by other drivers at the junction.
Dashcam footage provided by another motorist behind them shows how the child opened the back door on the left side of the white sedan.The couple driving the car which recorded the incident quickly blasted their car horn to alert the child’s parents. Pedestrians also ran over to the girl, and one of them picks the child up and later handed him back to his parents. Luckily, she was not harmed.
