Baby child less than 5 years was left on a running bike after a horrific accident on the outskirts of Bengaluru, and escaped unhurt.
A motorist and his wife were thrown off their bike when he tried to overtake a scooter on Bengaluru’s outskirts; their vehicle remained upright as it slowed to a halt near a road divider. Their child was still sitting on it.
The incident, which took place on Arishinkunte Road in Nelamangala, was filmed by a man who was travelling in a car just behind the couple. The child landed on the divider, and was unhurt.
“Why [was the] baby supposed to pay the price for your mistakes?” asked a Bengaluru cop who handles social media for the city police.
He attached a video of the incident to his tweet, in which he listed the infractions the child’s parents had committed: “speed, no helmets, overtaking from the left side and using mobile phones”.
“Fortunately, the kid was unhurt and safe,” the policeman said in his tweet.
“PS: These kinds of miracles don’t happen often!”
