This video shows a little girl slipping off the front of a scooter at a traffic junction - and under the wheels of a moving car. Miraculously, she survived with only slight bruising.

The toddler was sitting in front of the adult rider on the scooter, with another child perched behind, when she slipped off onto the road - just as the back wheels of the car beside moved forward next to her head and upper body.

The shocking scene was caught on CCTV in Jinhua, Zhejiang province in China and was shown on state television.

While the girl, who is reported to be two years old, is seen writhing on the road, the adult rider is seen getting off the scooter and rushing to her aid. Neither the driver or the child scooter passengers were wearing helmets.

State television reported that she only suffered slight bruising. The scooter driver has been blamed for weaving in and out of traffic.
