Horrifying moment two children fall from the boot of a speeding car into the road

This is the terrifying moment two young children fall from the boot of a speeding Volvo XC90.

The SUV had just begun accelerating onto a roundabout in Sochi - a city in Russia's Krasnodar Krai region - when a cars dashcam captured the frightening moment two children tumbled from the Volvo's boot into the road.


Narrowly avoiding a collision with the children, the driver of the dashcam vehicle stopped quickly with the passenger screaming in Russian: "Look there's a child. What just happened?"

The driver is seen running to the aid of a three-year-old girl who had sustained injuries during the fall and was hysterically crying in the middle of the road.

The 39-year-old mother had continued to speed on, unaware that the children, along with much of her shopping, had fallen from the boot.

Another child, a seven-year-old boy, managed to run across the carriageway but was still in the roadway when a car came round the corner.

From a different angle CCTV footage shows that three cars stopped to help.

The little girl was taken to hospital for treatment, but luckily there were no serious injuries to either child.

The mother is currently facing charges.
