A spine-chilling video of a child falling out from a moving car is the scariest thing you will see today. The video, caught on a surveillance camera, has gone viral. It shows a car taking a sharp turn on a road -- following which one of its doors suddenly opens and a child falls out.
The CCTV footage from north Kerala, and IPS officer Pankaj Nain tweeted the video to highlight the importance of child locks and car seats.
The child, however, did not suffer any serious injuries. The accident reportedly took place in the last week of December in Kottakkal in Malappuram.
"Child lock and child seats are very important when travelling with children. Check all doors are closed properly, and child lock is on. Always make sit children in a child restraint seat. All kids won't be as lucky as this one," the IPS officer posted on Twitter.

Pankaj Nain's tweet was flooded with reactions from users, who agreed with the officer.
Child lock is the right option. Children's must be engaged under seat belt. It could have easily prevented this.— Dhamu (@dhamuven) January 9, 2020

In India people don't even care to put seat belts, let alone child locks sir.— Friend of B&D (@ZenithAmit) January 9, 2020
Thanks for sharing. An eye opener on something which most of us consider as ‘not essential’.— George Varghese (@george_nazareth) January 10, 2020
Some even hailed the driver of the auto who stopped his vehicle at the right moment.
