Man Risks Life To Save Two-Year-Old Girl, Jumps In Front Of E-Rickshaw

The terrifying incident was reported on May 19 in China's Lankao county in Henan


A man in China risked his life and threw himself in front of an oncoming electric rickshaw to save a toddler. The dramatic and swift rescue was caught on surveillance camera.

A video posted on Facebook by Pear Video shows an out-of-control e-rickshaw barrelling across a pavement with a little girl clinging to it. The vehicle kept moving because the girl reportedly had her hand on the accelerator handle. Two women, presumably known to the girl, are seen frantically running behind the e-rickshaw. Seconds later, a man sprints towards the vehicle and jumps in front of it to make it stop. While he is successful in stopping the vehicle, he collapses to the ground shortly after the impact. Another man comes to their aid.

Remarkably, according to China's CGTN, the rescue took "less than three seconds".
