Dad saves girl, 4, who fell from car into busy intersection5/12/2012
It may take a couple views to understand what is going on in this CCTV video from China, but it's essentially a string of harrowing events cut short by a surge of adrenaline. Let's go through them together: 1. Unlocked passenger door allows child to tumble out into a busy intersection. 2. Car keeps rolling and seems to run over child's shoe. 3. Dad, who was driving and should have been keeping child in car, jumps out of moving vehicle to retrieve child. It's all pretty terrifying to see it happen in the midst of Wenzhou's heavy traffic, but it's a tremendous relief to see father and daughter reunited safely and know (according to the Youtube summary) that the girl escaped the incident with only "slight bruising."
Is the dad a hero, an idiot or a bit of both?
