Incredible CCTV footage has captured the moment a group of people worked together to free a child trapped beneath a car.

The video, recorded in China, shows two young children playing in a side street. At the start of the video, the driver of a red Ford Focus is forced to brake to avoid the youngsters.

After the near-miss, the children continue to play in the road, with the smaller boy lying across the path.

A little while later, the Focus driver returns and drives directly over the young child. Immediately realising that they have hit something, the driver gets out to look under their car as bystanders rush to help.

A crowd gathers, with people quickly working together to lift the car and free the boy.

The child was taken to hospital with minor cuts and bruises.
