Lucky catch saves 18-month-old in Surat hit-and-run
On Sunday night, a Pajero knocked down three bikes that were passing ahead of it on the bridge
While three people, including a child, lost their lives in a hit-and-run at an over bridge in Surat's Dindoli area on Sunday night, another baby had a miraculous escape.
On Sunday night, a Pajero knocked down three bikes that were passing ahead of it on the bridge. It was later revealed that the accident occurred after the driver lost control of the vehicle.
Flew out of mother's arms
A couple and their child were on one of the bikes hit by the car. The child, who seemed to be around one and a half years old, was being held by his mother, who was riding pillion. As soon as the SUV hit them, the child's father lost his balance, which led to him and the mother falling off the bike, while the child flew out of the mother's arms.
Luckily, one Rohit Patil and his wife Lakshmi were passing by the stretch at the same time. Upon seeing the child in the air, Lakshmi ran towards him, and caught him just in time.
Without a scratch
Had Lakshmi not done so, the child would have fallen 30 feet below. He escaped without so much as a scratch, but his mother suffered minor injuries and his father has a fracture in his leg. Meanwhile, police have taken two people into custody for the accident.
