It happened August 12 at Xinxiang, in Henan Province. A boy, whose name has not been revealed, was running across a busy street. CCTV surveillance footage shows him running directly in front of a passing white car, which hit him. Upon impact, he bounced up on the car's hood, and then slid off and was trapped under the car when it stopped.


Chao Feiyang, a passerby, saw the accident. He and his two friends tried to lift the car off the boy, but the vehicle was too heavy. Moments later, more than 20 people rushed out of nearby shops and restaurants to offer help. The boy was freed after everyone joined forces to lift the car and drag him out. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he is reported to be in stable condition.
