Chinese police officer rescues boy riding toy car on busy road

A toy-car-riding toddler was saved by police in China after motorists spotted him driving among rush-hour traffic.

Footage of the incident in Zhejiang, eastern China, shows as the three-year-old sits astride his toy car and pushes himself into oncoming traffic.


Several vehicles are forced to weave around him, but not one stops to help. A man even stands from the sunroof of a white Audi as it passes the child, appearing to film him.

Police officer Wu Feng eventually rescued the boy and removed his ride-on toy from the centre of the road in the incident last Thursday.

He then returned the fearless infant safely to his mother, who was waiting nearby, Chinese media site CCTV claimed.

How he came to be in the road is unknown.
