This is the shocking moment that a car ran over a young boy’s leg on a zebra crossing – completely trapping his ankle under the vehicle’s wheel.
In the clip, a boy can be seen running over a pedestrian crossing straight into a white Hyundai which knocks him over.
He falls awkwardly and his right foot and ankle end up trapped under the car’s offside rear wheel .
The boy can be seen screaming in pain and he frantically knocks on the passenger door.
A woman in the passenger seat opens it and peers out of it, and when she sees that the boy’s leg is trapped under the car’s wheel she reportedly tells the driver to move the car.
But as the driver tries to roll off the boy’s foot, he accidentally accelerates the wrong way, trapping the boy’s leg further.
Eventually, the motorist backs up and the boy is able to pull his leg free before hobbling away as passers-by rush to his aid.
The incident was captured on the dashcam of another car in the town of Bronnitsy in western Russia’s Moscow Oblast region.
Later, the female passenger of the Hyundai steps out of the car as a man carries the injured boy to the pavement.
Eyewitnesses said that the boy was not seriously injured and that he was lucky that he was not more badly hurt.
The video of the incident quickly went viral after being uploaded to social media and local internet forums.
Viewers were divided with some blaming the car driver for failing to see the boy and others pointing out that the lad should not have been running over the zebra crossing.
It is not known whether police are involved in the incident or whether the driver could face charges.
