Child narrowly dodges death in busy traffic

A young child in China's Zeijiang Province is lucky to be alive after navigating busy traffic on his toy car.

Heart-stopping footage from a surveillance camera captured the boy as he crossed several lanes of traffic while vehicles tried to dodge him on a street in Lishui City.

He was rescued by a passing police officer who had just left for rush-hour duty.

"It was very dangerous with many big vehicles around him, so without a second thought I rushed to the kid immediately and took him to the side of the road," officer Wu Feng said.

Mr Feng swooped to the boy's rescue when the toy car was almost bumper-to-bumper with a real one, picking him up and taking him to the side of the road.

Police were able to safely reunite the young boy with his mother.
