The incident took place in China's Lianyungang on December 27 and was caught on camera. Footage recorded shows the woman, identified as Ms Nan, crossing a road when the car hits her the first time. The driver immediately gets down from the car to help her as do several passersby. However, moments after they rescue her, the car zooms forwards again. The driver hadn't pulled the handbrakes of the vehicle, and his grandchild, still in the car, accidentally started it.
While Ms Nan's injuries were not life threatening, the video makes for quite a startling watch. Take a look:

"That was scary," says one Twitter user on the video. "Absolutely terrifying," says another.
