Miraculous Escape: Toddler Trips In The Middle of The Road, Falls In Front of Passing Car – But Watch What Happens Next

This is the shocking moment a four-year-old girl is run over by a car - and the driver doesn’t even stop. The little girl miraculously survives the horrendous incident and you can see her picking herself up after the car drives away. The shocking footage was captured on CCTV in the Vasant Kunj area of New Delhi, India, at 9am on January 12 and shows little Jyoti Choudhary walking onto the road close to her home before falling over and the car driving over her. Eye witness, Raj Singh, 40, who saw the incident unfold from his nearby office as a property dealer, said: ‘I saw the car running over the little girl, I ran towards her but by the time I got to her she was already up and walking. She was scared and crying but was fine within a few minutes. I checked her for any injuries but she seemed fine. It’s a miracle she walked out of the incident unhurt.’ He added that the driver of the car didn’t even realise what he had done as he drove away. Jyoti’s mother, Meenu, 25, was feeding her 18-month-old daughter Sunny at home when little Jyoti escaped through the front door. Her father, Venod, 30, a rickshaw driver was out at work. ‘I was at home feeding my other kids when Jyoti ran out of the house,’ Meenu said. ‘The first I knew of anything was when my neighbours brought Jyoti back to me and informed me about the incident. ‘I am truly blessed to see my child safe and home. It could have been a lot worse. It’s a miracle. I wouldn’t have forgiven myself if something had happened to her.’ Jyoti, who often goes wondering without her parents knowledge said: ‘I got scared but didn’t move.’ According to her teacher, Meenakshi, 45, at Samarpan School, in Kishangarh, New Delhi, Jyoti is an adventurous little girl. ‘It’s always difficult to keep her sitting still. She runs from one corner to the other in a blink of an eye. I’m not surprised she went wandering out of the house and onto the road. She is blessed she managed to escape the incident unscathed.’


In the morning of 12 January 2016 at around 9 am, four-year-old girl Jyoti Choudhary was wandering alone on a road near her house in Vasant Kunj area of New Delhi, India. Suddenly, the girl trips in the middle of the busy back road; in the path of an oncoming Car. Not aware of the girl lying on the road, the Car drives over her – luckily, through the gap in between its tyres – and the girl stands up later unhurt, only that she was scared and did not move for that brief moment of accident. As you can see the incident in the video, the little girl Jyoti Choudhary escapes from what could have been a fatal accident and walks back unscathed. A man in neighborhood who happens to see the incident comes to get hold of the fortunate girl, who he said was just scared and crying. The shocking and incredible near miss accident was captured by the CCTV footage in the Vasant Kunj area of New Delhi.

After knowing about the incident, Jyoti’s mother, Meenu, said that she is truly blessed to see her child safe and home. She also explained that Jyoti escaped through the front door onto the road when she was feeding her 18-month-old daughter Sunny at home.

Jyoti’s teacher, Meenakshi, said the young girl was particularly adventurous and it is difficult to keep her sitting still. The girl was certainly very lucky and fortunate not to get hurt in such a road accident. But the incident calls for parents to be careful and watchful of their kids’ wanderings.
