The youngster can be seen at the start of the video running across the road blindly, just as a white car is driving past. Unfortunately, the driver does not see the child and the boy gets hit by the car, bouncing off the bonnet and being forced underneath.
Good Samaritans nearby rush to the car, and help to lift it so that the child can be freed.
The shocking scenes were captured in Xinxiang in the Henan Province of China.
The boy was later sent to hospital, and it is believed that amazingly he managed to escape without injury.
